The University Honors Program has grants available for students in need of funding to complete honors experiential learning projects. Grants are awarded for study abroad, service-learning, undergraduate research, creative arts projects, and more. Grants cover a portion of the project cost and not the entire cost (usually 1/3 of the project cost or less).
Grants are also awarded to support travel to academic/professional conferences in which you are presenting.
Proposals requesting grants are accepted until funding has been exhausted for the academic year. You should submit your application as early as possible. Applications for retroactive grants (an application for a grant after the project has taken place or been completed) are not accepted.
To apply for a grant for an honors experiential learning project, submit an experiential learning project proposal that includes a budget (the last section of the proposal). Be sure to pay special attention to the proposal review dates and deadlines.
To apply for a grant to support a study abroad program in which you are participating, please submit an experiential learning project proposal for a global studies experiential learning project and include a budget.
To apply for a grant to support your travel to an academic/professional conference in which you are presenting, submit the following:
Submit all of the above information to Tricia Yee via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and copy your University Honors advisor. Please submit it all in one email. Requests for grants to present at an academic/professional conference may be submitted at any time.
Honors grants are posted to students' accounts as scholarships and can affect an individual student’s financial aid. A student’s financial aid award could be adjusted as the result of receiving a scholarship. Students should contact OneStop to find out how a scholarship could affect his/her financial aid.
Some students may not be eligible to receive honors grants due to the amount of scholarship funding that they are already receiving. This can especially impact students who have the full cost of their education funded by funds such as scholarships. If you are unsure of whether you would be eligible to receive an additional scholarship (the honors grant is posted to your student account as a scholarship), please contact OneStop.
Students will see the funds posted on their accounts as the "Mary Rowe Moore Award."
Grants can only be posted to a student's account during a term in which a student is enrolled in classes. This requirement could delay the receipt of grant funds. Grants cannot be posted to student's accounts during terms in which they are on co-op. Students must be enrolled in classes full-time.
Students must have direct deposit set up on their account in order to receive the grant award in the most timely fashion.
If a student is awarded a grant but does not participate in or complete the program/project for which the grant was awarded for any reason, he/she will be required to reimburse University Honors for the full amount of the grant.
Contact Tricia Yee at email@example.com or 556-6236 with questions regarding the administration of the grant. Contact your University Honors advisor with questions about to the experiential learning project proposal.
