Awards for Faculty-led Programs

Your Guide to Applying for Awards
for Faculty-led Programs

How do I apply for an award through the Summit Center for Global Learning?
As part of your application to a faculty-led program, you will also have the opportunity to complete an award application, due at the same time. The Center for Global Learning will use your application to find available awards for which you are eligible based on the requirements (e.g. GPA, major, or level of financial need) of the various awards for faculty-led programs.  A Committee will review all applications for content and eligibility. The decision on acceptance to the program and award amounts will be communicated at the same time.

What awards are available for faculty-led programs?
Awards vary based on both need and merit. 
  • Awards come from a range of both internal (e.g. CGL funding) and external (e.g. Donors) sources.
  • Some faculty-led programs have additional funding from unique program-specific grants.
  • Some departments give out individual awards to students traveling on a faculty-led program related to the department, usually majors or minors.
  • Seniors are not eligible for awards, since travel takes place after graduation. Click here to read the full Policy for Seniors.

When will I find out about my award?
Award applications are due on the same day as your application to program. The committee that reviews awards will be reviewing your award application while faculty are reviewing the program applications. If you are accepted to the program, you will receive an acceptance letter and award amount at the same time.
