Grants will be awarded to students based on the competitive merit of their own written applications, which describe how the support will enable them to experience or learn about a career and/or advanced study.
The fund is not designed to support course work, certification programs, or proposals solely designed to advance credentials. Creative proposals focused on exposure or learning and for careers in which formal internship programs are rare
will be given priority consideration.
Applications will be considered from matriculated first- or second-year students only
. Apply on naviGATE.
Deadline: March 1, 2013.

- registration and travel for participation in career development workshops
