The Honors College is pleased to offer two small grant programs,
one for Research and Professional Development and one for Study Abroad.
Deadlines vary by grant.
Honors College Research and Professional Development Grants
Awarded competitively and on a rolling basis, these grants offer up to $300 for students to advance their research or their professional and academic goals. Such awards would be appropriate for such uses as: the purchase of special equipment or software, travel to a research site or archive, travel to an academic conference, travel to another professional conference, etc. The College will award up to six research grants per semester, as funds allow.
To apply, students should complete this form as much in advance of the planned travel as possible. Please note that the College can only reimburse already incurred expenses such as conference registration, plane tickets, etc.
Honors College Study Abroad Grants
These competitive awards of up to $1000 are meant to help offset the costs of study abroad. Priority will be given to students who are first-time study abroad participants and whose travel expenses are not covered by other scholarships (e.g. Discovery, Luckyday, Presidential, etc). The College will award 2-4 grants per semester, as funds allow.
To apply, students should complete this form. Applications are due November 1 (for spring travel) and March 15 (for summer or fall travel).
