A New Initiative
In Spring of 2019, WGS launched the WGS Student Funding Opportunities initiative so that students may apply for funding to support engagement in study abroad, internships, community-based learning projects, and research/scholarly activities. Funding for these opportunities is made possible because of our generous sponsors in the community and on campus.
Funding available through this initiative is restricted to WGS majors and minors who have completed a minimum of 12 hours in WGS (if you do not meet this criterion, do not be dismayed, contact Dr. De Welde! There may be a way you can still apply). The application (located here) asks for details about your project, your timeline, your budget and funding request, and if relevant a letter of support from a faculty mentor.
Rolling deadline; 30-day advance notice before funds are needed.
$50-$1,000. Number and award amounts will vary and depend on budget availability. Awards cannot be used for student salaries (such as on a research project), faculty stipends, or direct payments to community organizations/businesses with which a student is partnered.
