ONSF Exploration Grant now available


The application for the Office of National Scholarships & Fellowships Exploration Grant is now live. The Exploration Grant supports current UT undergraduates—with awards of up to $5000—in their efforts to plan for and establish in-person, on-the-ground connections with prospective research advisors/affiliates in connection with subsequent prestigious post-graduate fellowships applications, especially the Fulbright. This is NOT a study abroad grant. We often describe the Exploration Grant to students as a sort of academic business trip … and one that operates, typically, as a pre-Fulbright grant.

Exploration Grants are generally for 3 – 4 weeks, during the summer. Student applications must be detailed, focused, and well-planned. The Exploration Grant application is due January 29, 2018; the application and additional information on the grant program can be found here: https://onsf.utk.edu/exploration-grant/
