Travel and Research Grants
Schreyer Ambassador Travel Grants
In addition to the significant subsidies the SHC offers for its own signature international programs, our Schreyer Ambassador Travel Grant program provides funding for Scholars pursuing study, research, internship, or service abroad whether through Penn State or other providers. Each year we spend well over $250,000 supporting Scholars in their international pursuits.
As with all SHC grants, students may apply through the Student Records System under the Grants tab. First consideration, according to our matrix of funding levels by destination and duration of program, will be given to Scholars who apply by the semester deadlines:
Fall Programs Deadline
Spring Programs Deadline
Summer Programs Deadline (including Maymester)
Funding is only available for Scholars in good standing, and all funding is subject to available funds. The SHC encourages Scholars to pursue all available funding possibilities, whether in their academic college, the University Office of Global Programs, or through the Undergraduate Fellowships Office for external sources.
International Thesis Research Grants
Thanks to a general gift from Dr. Howard Kulin, the SHC offers enhanced funding for Scholars who propose significant time abroad (2 months or more) devoted exclusively to thesis research. For more information about these grants, please contact Dr. Richard Stoller.
