Over the span of twenty years, the Student Research and Travel Grant Program has provided grant funding to New College of Florida 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 two separate times each academic year. The Fall submission deadline is no later than 5:00 pm the Monday immediately following Fall Break and the Spring deadline is no later than 5:00 pm the Monday immediately following Spring Break. Completed submissions are reviewed by a committee of alumnae/i and faculty members.
Student applicants must request from a New College of Florida faculty advisor a letter of support submitted on the student’s behalf. Without this letter of support, the submission is not considered complete. If there is intent for a group project involving students, one student may apply for a grant to support academic activities and all students involved in the project must be named as members of the project workgroup.
Please note: Currently, there is no set maximum or minimum award dollar amount, previous awarded projects have rarely received 100 percent funding given the high demand of these grants and the volume of requests made each semester.
