Student Grants

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 within or outside of the United States.

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 travel within or beyond your home country is not involved in the internship or research work. Work must be accomplished remotely until local or national restrictions are lifted.

  • 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 travel is not involved and work is allowed to be done remotely until local or national restrictions are lifted.


The Winston Center will require official documentation from the organization that work is allowed to be done remotely.

Summer grant decisions will be sent out beginning May 15.

Until further notice, travel grants are only being awarded for registration fees for online conferences.

For questions regarding the grant application process, please contact Monetta Edwards.
