Student Support

Whether you are looking for financial support for a project, or trying to find a faculty mentor, Maxcy is here to help. 

Scholarships and Grants

Grants of up to $1,500 per award are available from Maxcy for study abroad and research projects. All current and past residents are eligible to apply as well as degree-seeking international students, provided all eligibility requirements for the award are met.

This grant supports current and former residents in their pursuit of research, scholarship and creative activities. The award funds up to $1,000 that may used for salary, materials and supplies, and/or research travel.


The navigator has a ROLLING deadline, which means there isn't a designated deadline. When you are ready, submit your proposal. We will then submit the proposal to a review committee. The process will take approximately one month from submission to award. Despite the rolling deadline, we recommended that you submit as a early as possible.
