travel-study grant application
Foundation Fellow on Mt Kilimanjaro

Foundation Fellows are eligible to apply for travel-study grants for a cumulative total of $9,000 and research/conference grants for a cumulative total of $1,750. These grants may be used to participate in UGA or non-UGA study abroad programs, intensive language programs, internships, or public service projects. Although Fellows typically use these grants in their post-second and post-third year summers, they can be combined with the regular semester stipend and used to study at any time during the academic year.

Fellows share their travel-study experiences with each other at their fall retreat, presenting reports and slideshows that highlight the significance of their travels and enrich the education of their peers.

Fellows should discuss the academic merit and viability of their travel-study plans with the Scholarships Coordinator before submitting a formal grant request.

Deadlines for Grant Application Submission

For fall travel: June 15
For winter break or spring travel: November 1
For Maymester travel: February 1
For summer travel: March 1
For research and conference grants, apply two months before the conference or project. (Seniors must apply for conference funding before December 15 of their last year of study.)
