Monetary Support for Experiential Learning or Conference Attendance

Gary L. Rozier Student Experience Fellowships 

Funded by a generous alumnus, these fellowships assist undergraduate economics majors engaged in experiential learning outside the classroom and similar activities that afford preparation for professional pursuits, including attendance at professional or academic conferences.  Preference in selecting awardees will be given for activities where financial obstacles would likely prevent a student from participating.  Amount of support is capped at $1,000 per student and will be paid into the individual student’s account in the University’s Bursar office. 

To be eligible for the fellowship, a student’s experiential learning activity or conference attendance must take place between August 29, 2016 and August 28, 2017.  This means you could request support for an activity currently underway OR taking place before the start of the fall 2017 semester.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until June 1, 2017 or until available funds are disbursed, whichever occurs first.  An announcement will be posted here on the blog when the available funds are exhausted.

Please carefully read the instructions included in the application form; each completed application should include at least 3 pages.

Students selected for this award are expected to write a letter of appreciation to Mr. Rozier which will be sent via the BSOS Office of Alumni and Donor Relations.
