The Winston Center awards a limited number of ad hoc grants to undergraduate students for work related to the Center’s mission.
Internship Grants: Stipends for uncompensated part-time or full-time internships in nonprofit, service or public sector organizations during the summer. Graduating seniors are not eligible.
Travel Grants: Supplemental awards for travel to attend leadership or ethics conferences, research work, and other relevant endeavors. Service trips sponsored by Campus Ministry and Study Abroad Programs are not eligible. Seniors are eligible for activities completed by May 1.
In light of the rapidly evolving global situation, the Winston Center is implementing the following restrictions on funding eligibility for this year’s grant awards:
Due to University travel restrictions, the Winston Center will not fund grants that require U.S. citizens or residents to travel outside of the United States, or if in state travel restrictions are in place.
For International Students:
- If you are an international student and plan on undertaking an internship or research work in your home country, you are still eligible, as long as local or national travel is allowed.
- If you are an international student and plan on undertaking an internship or research work in the United States, you are still eligible, as long as local or national travel restrictions are lifted.
Until further notice, travel grants are only being awarded for research projects and registration fees for online conferences.
Internship Grant Applications are currently being accepted for summer 2021. Deadline is May 13, 2021.
Summer grant decisions will be sent out beginning May 24.
