Student Project Grants


The purpose of these grants is to help to connect students academic studies with real world experiences in the field of human rights so that Beloit College students can incorporate human rights awareness and action into their studies and career plans. These grants are meant to defray travel and living expenses required to undertake internships and research over winter and summer breaks, and to attend professional conferences with Beloit College faculty. Recipients are asked to share their experiences with the campus community in a public forum.

Funding available

$5,000 is available each year, with the average award $1,500. Students apply using the common grant application, which means their proposals will also be considered for other Beloit College funding sources. Students home departments may also have funding for student projects.

NOTE: Applicants must describe in their applications how their past coursework and activities demonstrate an active commitment to human rights and/or social justice.

Students can also apply for programming grants to organize activities on or off-campus.

Examples of Funded Projects

Examples can be found in the Weissberg Program Annual Reports.
