Opportunities Fund

Do you want to start a special project, attend a conference, initiate community service, or develop an extracurricular organization? The Undergraduate Opportunities Fund may be able to help you meet your goals.

The Undergraduate Opportunities Fund was established in 2009 through generous contributions from alumni and friends to support academic and community endeavors of School of Education and Social Policy students.

 The fund provides support for SESP undergraduates’ special projects. The project might be an initiative under the direction of a faculty member or an individual endeavor of your choice. You may apply for support from the Opportunities Fund for items that support or advance your project. Examples include, but are not limited to, expenses associated with an academic conference, travel or another opportunity that is not research-related. 

Please note that funds are not for living expenses. An individual is eligible for one award during the course of their undergraduate career.

If your project is research-oriented, consider applying for funding through the SESP Undergraduate Research Fundor for anundergraduate research grant.
