Experience a culture of discovery at New College, where students expand their understanding of the world by conducting research on campus, in the community, and around the globe. Starting your first year, work directly with faculty on research that most students don’t experience until graduate school.
Student Research & Travel Grants
For more than two decades, the Student Research and Travel Grant Program (SRTG) has provided grant funding to New College students in support of research and travel associated with their thesis work, presenting at professional conferences, tutorials, and independent study projects. Coordinated by the Center for Career Engagement and Opportunity, SRTG proposals are invited from current students in good academic standing twice a year (once a semester) and are reviewed by a committee of alumni and faculty members.
