Internal Grants for Students

Student Development Fund 

Do you need funding to attend and participate in an academic conference? Apply for the Student Development Fund (SDF)! The Student Development Fund grants awards of up to $500 to undergraduate students who attend academic conferences each semester. Priority for funding is given to those who are presenting at a conference.

This is a rolling application, meaning you can apply anytime during the academic year. Please note: you must submit your application at least five business days (preferably many more!)--while the college is in session--before you need the money. Decisions about Student Development Fund awards cannot be made when the college is not in session.

Do you know someone who would like to contribute to the Student Development Fund for student travel to conferences?

Please have them contact Emily Stone if you have any questions.

Student Development Fund Application

Bridge to Business Award

Students who register for the  Bridge to Business program may apply for funding to help defray costs. Awards are typically in the $1,000 to $1,500 range depending on funding availability, and will not exceed $1,700.

Submit a brief (1-2 page, 300-500 word) statement discussing your interest in and reasons for wanting to participate in the Women's Bridge to Business program. What are your long-range goals (as you understand them) and how do you think Bridge to Business might relate to those goals?
