The Altman Program Scholarly Engagement Grant Program is designed to promote scholarly activity that enhances successful completion of Altman Program curricular requirements, internationalized academic learning, and/or professional development.
Scholarly Engagement Grants are funded on a competitive basis up to $500.00. Appropriate uses for the grant may include, but are not limited to: summer study abroad programs, required summer academic coursework, travel to/from academic conferences, travel to/from job interview sites that aren't reimbursed from the hiring firm, housing or travel expenses associated with unpaid internships.
Reimbursement of expenses related to airfare or housing of JYA trips will not be approved with these funds. Students who receive the Summer Internship Award are not simultaneously eligible for the Scholarly Engagement Grant.
All funding is provided via reimbursement. Grant recipients should submit paperwork (i.e. detailed, itemized receipts) for reimbursement after completion of proposed project.
The applications will be received on an ongoing basis. Applications should be received one month prior to when funds will be utilized. Applicants will be notified of the status of their proposal within one month of its submission.
Applicants must be members of the Altman Program in good standing, with a 3.0 GPA or above. Freshmen should be targeting projects with an execution date after the Altman Rising Sophomore Study Abroad Program.
Proposals will be evaluated on the following criteria:
