The Beloit College Field Experience Grant Program

What is the Field Experience Grant Program?

In the spirit of the Beloit Plan, the Field Experience Grant program is available to first year Beloit College students who received the Grant opportunity as part of their admission package. This program provides students with funding to plan and launch their own independent or collaborative project. Each grantee is asked to use the program to enrich and test, stretch and sculpt their academic interests, capabilities and confidence.

What is the goal of the Field Experience Grant?

The Field Experience Grant (commonly called the FEG Program) helps first year students immerse themselves in the liberal arts by providing them with an opportunity to receive up to $2,000 to fund a project during the summer following their second semester. This is an opportunity to practice making and implementing a plan, challenging students and helping to prepare them for even bigger, better, and more competitive opportunities in the future.

What have students done for their field experience?

The Liberal Arts in Practice Center

The Beloit College Liberal Arts in Practice Center aims to provide students with resources and opportunities to become practitioners of the liberal arts. For Beloit College students, this means:

  • stepping out of their comfort zones and into situations that will challenge them
  • seizing opportunities to synthesize knowledge and experience
  • transferring academic and experiential knowledge to new settings
  • and building on prior experiences to ethically and thoughtfully confront challenges

To achieve these goals, the Liberal Arts in Practice Center serves as a one-stop-shop for opportunities to practice the liberal arts by providing information about available programs and direction on how to pursue those programs.
