Capstone Scholars

Grants and Scholarships

Sometimes, all it takes to reach your next goal is a helping hand. We offer grant opportunities that might just make the difference.


Offered through the Office of Undergraduate Research, the Magellan Apprentice grant supports Capstone Scholars in their pursuit of research, scholarship and creative activities. The award funds up to $1,000 towards salary, materials, supplies and/or travel.

The Passport Travel Grant is designed specifically for Capstone Scholars, and rewards up to $1500 toward tuition costs for Maymester and Summer study abroad programs. Please note the grant does not apply towards program fee costs or deposits. Our application for 2022 travel has closed, and winners will be contacted in early December. If you’d like to apply next year, the application for 2023 travel will be live in October 2022. For more information, please reach out to James Jacocks at

Capstone Fellows are eligible to receive this award one time, pending a successful application.

Please note the Professional Development Grant can only be provided as a reimbursement towards one approved expense up to $500. Please plan your finances accordingly. We also ask for clear, legible proof of purchase in order to fulfill the grant. If you have additional questions, please email

The Capstone Scholars program invites students based on the presence of a university scholarship. These scholarships are granted and revoked independently of our office, and there is no single "Capstone Scholarship." As such, graduating or withdrawing from our program does not necessitate a loss of scholarship.

National Fellowships

If you are a current Capstone Scholar and are interested in other funding opportunities, we work closely with National Fellowships and Scholar Programs.  The National Fellowships advisors help you apply for merit-based  experiences that can connect your academic, personal, and professional goals. From language learning and going abroad to graduate school and research (and more!), there are over 200 opportunities. Check out the Get Started page to make an appointment and explore your options!

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
