The Honors College offers small cash awards of between $100 and $500 each to students pursuing supplemental experiential learning opportunities. These awards are primarily designed to help support off-campus research and education, including attendance at academic conferences, internships, study abroad, and archival visits, among other possibilities. If you have a question about the eligibility of an experiential learning opportunity you have in mind, please contact us to discuss it.
To be eligible for funding, you must be a member of the Honors College in good standing. Students may apply for up to $500 of funding per year twice during their undergraduate career. Applications are accepted year-round but must be received by the Honors College at least two months in advance of the intended use of the funds.
The application has two parts:
- Part I must be completed by all applicants.
- In Part II, select and complete the section that applies to your opportunity—research, conference travel, an off-campus course, or other—and attach the required documentation.
