Grants Available through the Honors & Scholars Program
The Honors & Scholars Program sponsors a number of competitive grants to award funds to students for a variety of opportunities that will benefit the University by enhancing its reputation as a premier undergraduate institution of higher education. Additionally, there are grants for student scholars and their mentors to support their research efforts, and for faculty in their efforts to improve the quality of intellectual life on campus.
Undergraduate Travel Grants may be used to pay for travel expenses associated with national and international conferences where students present their research to professional audiences. Grants may also be used for costs associated with internship opportunities or study abroad experiences.
For more information regarding the application process, please contact the Honors Office Manager.
S.M.A.R.T. Grants are awarded to undergraduate students and their faculty mentors who are engaged in collaborative scholarly endeavors. For purposes of these grant applications, these scholarly projects are defined broadly. Students in the natural sciences or social sciences may be involved in empirical research, whereas students in the arts and humanities may be involved in producing a portfolio of work. Students in engineering may be involved in a building project, whereas students involved in computing sciences may be involved in writing a computer program. We encourage students from all disciplines to apply for funding.
Over the course of several years, the application process for these grants has become increasingly competitive whereas funding continues to be static. Applicants are therefore strongly encouraged to pay close attention to instructions, address each question thoroughly, and make a compelling argument for both the importance of the scholarship as well as the value for the student of engaging in this scholarship.
