Department Scholarships

The department encourages students to look near and far in identifying directed investigations, focused research, travel itineraries and service opportunities. We support global thinking and visioning, but also recognize the truly unique opportunities of more local conditions. The committee supports both broad travel and more focused research that may not have extensive travel as an underlying theme.
