External Programs

Provide financial and professional support for research, completion of your undergraduate education, and funding for graduate and international study and research. Unlike financial aid, scholarships such as the Truman, Rhodes, or Udall are merit-based; need is not a factor.

Internal Programs

Can help you carry out independent research or creative work during the summers. An internal grant can help you pursue intensive work related to your major, develop interests that may lead to other academic or professional training and experience, and pursue passions in community outreach.
