Apply today for BSOS Winter/Spring 2021 Undergraduate Experience Funds!


 









These funds assist undergraduate BSOS majors engaged in experiential learning outside the classroom, such as unpaid internships, research, service learning, and professional or academic virtual conferences. The funds are intended to help offset expenses related to such activities including, but not limited to;

  • pandemic-conscious travel/transportation expenses
  • pandemic-related relocation expenses 
  • professional attire
  • opportunity costs, (i.e. the need to give up a part-time paid job in order to take an unpaid internship.)
  • software/technology, material needs, not provided by employer/university, but essential to the experience. 
  • virtual conference fees

For additional examples of the kinds of expenses that may be considered for funding, please click here.

If you are a BSOS student with financial need that is preventing you from taking advantage of an unpaid opportunity, we encourage you to apply for BSOS Undergraduate Experience Funds.

Applications for Winter/Spring 2021 experiences are due no later than 5:00 p.m., December 7.
