The Student Research and Travel Grant Program provides grants to New College students in support of research and travel associated with their thesis work, tutorials and independent study projects.
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 and the Spring deadline is 5 p.m. on the Monday after Spring Break. 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. To submit your final report, email NCAlum@ncf.edu.
