Honors Summer Enrichment Grants Now Open!

What: The Honors College summer enrichment grant provides an opportunity for Honors students to pursue intellectually engaging activities during the summer months. Activities eligible for funding include personal expenses related to study abroad, research, internships, and community impact projects. These grants can be used to cover housing, travel to study abroad or internship sites, food, and other living expenses. They do not cover tuition, course work, or the materials cost associated with research, nor do they provide stipends for work performed. Grant awards will range from $500 – $1000, depending on the number of proposals we receive and how well each proposal connects an applicant’s summer plans to their long-term goals. Applicants must be in good standing in the Honors College. Recipients will be required to present on their summer endeavors sometime during the 2019-2020 Academic Year.

Blank applications, which include detailed instructions, can be found in the Forms tab at the top of the Honors Hub. Questions may be directed to plasmatinc@cofc.edu.

When: The deadline to apply is 12:00 p.m. on Monday, February 25, 2019.

2019 UCSC Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program

Each March, the UCSC Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program selects 20 early-undergraduate Scholars from around the country to participate in a two-year conservation mentorship program during the summer. The program’s goal is to serve students from groups traditionally underrepresented in conservation, across disciplines who can contribute to diversifying, redefining, and strengthening efforts to protect land, wildlife, and water.

Learn More

What: During the first year, Scholars participate in an eight-week, intensive summer course integrating conservation design, leadership, and research experiences while traveling with a close group of peers and mentors. During the second summer, Scholars pursue eight-week research and practice internships with nationally-recognized conservation organizations and agencies. A professional development retreat after the second summer brings together the Scholar cohort and prepares them to apply for jobs and graduate school. Throughout the two years and beyond, the program works with home mentors at each Scholar’s campus to provide ongoing support. Scholars receive a $4,000 stipend each summer and become part of the national Doris Duke Conservation Scholars network for life.

To Apply: The program’s application can be found here. Applications are due February 8, 2019.

For more information, please visit the program’s website or contact the Program Director, Dr. Justin Cummings, at jacummin@ucsc.edu.
