Since 2021, the Morehead Honors College has been offering the Honors Domestic Experiential Learning Scholarship to help cover the costs of summer experiential learning opportunities occurring within the U.S.
Eligible experiential learning opportunities include summer internships, field study programs, research, and creative projects wherein students’ costs go above the normal cost of attendance and are not otherwise covered by other funding sources (e.g. a significant salary or stipend, UGA’s CURO Research Award, and Experiential Learning Scholarship, etc.). Scholarships usually range from $1,000 to $3,500.
For the 2023 competition, you must be an Honors student in good academic standing who, as of summer 2023, will be a rising second, third, or fourth year. Applicants must provide a letter of support from someone supervising the experiential learning experience (e.g. a supervisor of an internship, a professor serving as a research mentor) or proof of acceptance in an experiential learning program (e.g. letter of acceptance into a field study program). Awards are merit-based, taking into account the student’s academic record, quality of the essay and resume, and case made for the experience. The award amount will depend upon the cost and length of the experience.
The two application deadlines for summer 2023 funding are Wednesday, April 19 and Wednesday, May 3 (both by 11:59pm).
Those applying by the first deadline will be at an advantage, but some funding will be reserved for students who do not have their experiences confirmed until the second deadline. Decisions will go out within about two weeks after each deadline.
