Scholarships & Awards

Individual Professional Development Funding
Funded by the Larry Smith Endowment

Applications are accepted until funds deplete and are reviewed December 1st and March 1st and awarded by the end of each of those months. The funds may be used to enhance student professional development through out-of-class learning experiences, such as travel to professional conferences or meetings, assistance in developing presentations to professional organizations, and seed money to conduct research and/or pursue grants. These funds cannot be used for on-campus conferences or Student Org focused events/activities. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but funds are limited so apply early! 


The application can be found on EagleSync (linked above) in the forms section. The application form is called "2022-2023 Student Professional Development Funding Request."
