    Experiential Learning Grant

    In an effort to encourage more students to participate in experiential learning, the university administration has provided funds to the Economics Department to assist students who would not be able to have these experiences without funding outside of their own resources. This grant is to be used for study abroad, mentored research, or field study to assist with any expenses related to living expenses, travel, tuition, etc.

    Internship Grant

    Internships are rewarding and valuable experiences, but can be difficult to finance all of the necessary expenses, even if it is a paid internship.  Internship grants for undergraduate and graduate students who are declared majors in a program in the College of Family, Home, and Social Science are available depending on financial need, the character of the internship, and the extent to which the internship will aid the student in future academic and career goals.​
