Honors College Research and Professional Development Grants 

Students StudyingAwarded 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.

Students should apply 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.

The College will award 2-4 grants per semester, as funds allow.

Applications are due October 1 (for spring travel) and March 15 (for summer or fall travel).
