Honors & Scholars Grants

Honors & Scholars Programs students in good standing are eligible to apply for grant funding to cover expenses related to travel (e.g. study abroad, service trips, attending a conference) or research (e.g. lab supplies).

NOTE: Haslam Scholars should request funding here.

Grant applications are accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed monthly with awards granted throughout the year. However, students applying for funds to be used for study abroad should apply by the priority deadlines listed below.

Spring Term Priority Deadline: October 31
Mini-Term and Summer Term Priority Deadline: March 31
Fall Term and Full Academic Year Priority Deadline: June 30

Study abroad/travel applicants: expected grant amounts depend on quality of application and length of trip. For example, for a short term study abroad, students should only expect to receive ~$500. For longer, semester long trips, the average amount received is ~$1000-1500.

In evaluating grant applications, we consider the following:

  1. The strength of the scholar’s application essays
  2. The appropriateness of the scholar’s plan of study to their overall academic plan
  3. The quality of the match between the scholar’s goals and the opportunities that the experience offers

*No incomplete applications will be considered.*
