Student Research and Travel Grant Program

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, tutorials and independent study projects. It is funded through the New College Alumnae/i Association and the New College Foundation.

Support SRTG

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 Friday before Fall Break (or the end of Mod 1) and the Spring deadline is 5 p.m. on the Friday before Spring Break (also the end of Mod 1).  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.

All applications are due to the Office of Research Programs and Services in Cook Hall. For more information, contact ORPS at

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.
