Liberal Arts students may apply for Liberal Arts enrichment funds to support their participation in:
- Education abroad/international experience
- Undergraduate Research (including conference participation)
When you submit a Liberal Arts enrichment funds application, the application information will be shared with your academic department, in the event they have department-based resources to support your experience.
In addition to College-level resources, you're strongly encouraged to apply for University-level support for your enrichment experiences.
Education Abroad/International Experiences:
Education Abroad offers grants and scholarships, some need-based and some merit-based. There also is some financial support for participation in specific programs, especially in non-traditional study abroad locations.
Schreyer Travel Ambassador Grant to support study abroad and international experiences.
Undergraduate Research/Conference Travel and/or Internships:
Liberal Arts majors participating in an internship experience are encouraged to apply for The Virginia Todd Chapel Executive Internship Program. Undergraduate students selected will receive a $5,000 award to support their internship experience. Eligibility requirements and application instructions for The Virginia Todd Chapel Executive Internship Program can be found on our website.
Penn State Undergraduate Research Conference Travel Request to support your travel to a conference to present your research. This form should be submitted to your academic department for approval first. The application, together with any supporting materials the student or mentor would like to include, should then be forwarded to the Career Enrichment Network (5 Sparks) after the mentor's approval has been obtained and at least thirty (30) days before the travel date. NOTE: Multiple requests from the same academic department to attend the same conference should be submitted together. Career Enrichment Network staff will forward all forms to the Office of Undergraduate Education. Once approval has been received, students will receive e-mail notification from the College of the Liberal Arts.
