Funding Sources

If you are unsure if you are eligible to receive funding from a particular funding source, let the source determine that for you! Check the box on the Application Google Form.

The following grants are represented within the Common Grant. See details for these grants below:


LAP Funds

Available to freshman, sophomores and juniors to support liberal arts in practice experiences

If you receive funding your experience needs to count for credit in some way:

  • FEP 200
  • FEP 201
  • Course transfer
  • Special Project
  • Etc.

Remember that if you are registering a course for credit through the college, this will cost money. You can include this fee in your Budget. If you want the college to pay for you to receive credit, you need to put the cost of the course on your budget form. Please note that common grant funds cannot pay for you to take a course that Beloit offers with the exception of courses such as FEP 200, 201, or a special project.
