For more than two decades, the Student Research and Travel Grant Program has provided grant funding to New College students in support of research and travel associated with their thesis work, tutorials and independent study projects. It is funded through the New College Alumnae/i Association and the New College Foundation.
Proposals are invited from current students in good academic standing twice a year — or once a semester and are reviewed by a committee of alumnae/i and faculty members. The Fall deadline is 5 p.m. on the Monday after Fall Break (the start of Mod 2) and the Spring deadline is 5 p.m. on the Monday after Spring Break (also the start of Mod 2).
Student applicants must have a New College faculty advisor submit a letter of support. One student may apply for a grant to support academic activities for a group project involving several students. While there is no set maximum or minimum award amount, projects rarely receive 100 percent funding due to the high volume of requests each semester.
For an application or more information, contact Courtney Hughes in New College’s Center for Engagement and Opportunity at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have received funding in the past, you must submit a thank-you letter to the Student Research and Travel Grant Committee in order to receive your funding. In order to remain eligible for funding in the future, you must submit a one page summary of your experience along with receipts detailing your travel and/or research expenses within 30 days of completing your research or travel. Receipts must be submitted to Courtney Hughes in the CEO. To submit your final report, email NCAlum@ncf.edu.
