Haslam Scholars are encouraged to participate in co-curricular experiences that complement their academic interests and passions during their time as a Haslam Scholar. Scholars in good standing are eligible to receive up to $5,000 to support participation in co-curricular experiences such as research, travel (for study abroad or conferences), and unpaid internships or research experiences, during the program tenure.
Scholars may request funds more than once if they have not used the total $5,000. Please note that students will need to provide documentation of associated costs and wages, and a letter of support from their faculty regarding research supplies. Wage requests will be honored up to $13 per hour for all unpaid experiences, as per the University of Tennessee minimum wage for full and part time employees.
For most experiences, scholars may request funds at any time but should allow a 3–4 week process time. In order to allow the necessary processing time for study abroad funding, scholars should request funds for the appropriate semester no later than
- October 31 for spring semester
- March 31 for summer semester
- June 30 for fall semester
