Field Experience Program

What is the Field Experience Grant Program

The Field Experience Program (also referred to as the FEG program) is an opportunity for first-year Beloit College students who received the Field Experience Grant opportunity as part of their admission package to connect their experiences and interests, test them out in new places, and build confidence in their ability to pursue their dreams at college and beyond. Funding of up to $2,000 will support a significant self-designed learning opportunity in the summer following each recipient's first year.

To learn more about what Field Experience Grant students think about their experience, listen to Field Experience podcasts.

Current Field Experience Grant Students

Congratulations to each of you on receiving grant awards for your proposed projects!  What will your learning adventure be?  Whatever it is, we’re here to help you take full advantage of this opportunity to jump-starting your Beloit College liberal arts experience. By the spring, we’re confident you’ll be prepared to design and take charge of your own summer learning experience.

We look forward to working with you to craft this opportunity and to start putting the liberal arts into practice.
