We strive to increase student access to information about funding for global learning experiences—and simplify the application process. This approach assures that we are allocating funding to our students in efficient, inclusive, and equitable ways.

Off-Campus Opportunity Fund

Several central units across the university use a streamlined application system called the Off-Campus Opportunity Fund to offer grants to undergraduate and graduate students for off-campus experiences.

You use a common online application to apply for grants offered through the following central units (note that eligibility varies by award):

  • Office of Global Learning: Student Travel Grants

  • Office of Engagement Initiatives: Community Engaged Student Grant Program

  • Office of Academic Diversity Initiatives: Student Individual Funding Sponsorship
