Mission Possible: Securing Funding for Experiential Learning Opportunities
Experiential Learning opportunities like study abroad, internships, faculty-student research, community engaged service learning and BreakAways abound but, finding a way to pay the bills can seem like an uphill battle. Some opportunities come with funding but even those often require an out-of-pocket commitment. The good news is dollars are allocated to support students in these efforts. This event will help students be aware of the funding possibilities and submit a competitive application.
This session will introduce students to the funding support options that exist. Speakers will:
- Review the types of experiential learning experiences that can qualify for funding
- Provide an overview of funding sources available on campus
- Introduce faculty and staff that can provide guidance, support and coaching during the application process
- Identify best practices to build competitive applications
