SRHC STUDENT GRANT OPPORTUNITIES

SRHC Grants for Members

The Southern Regional Honors Council offers two programs that provide monetary support for scholarship and leadership of students from member institutions. 


SRHC STUDENT STIPENDS FOR PARTNERS IN THE PARKS (PIP), NCHC SEMESTERS, NCHC WINTERIMS, AND OTHER NCHC-AFFILIATED PROGRAMS
 

SRHC provides Student Stipends of varying amounts up to $700 to offset the cost of attending any NCHC-sponsored experiential program (Partners in the Parks, NCHC Semesters, NCHC Winterims, etc.). As does NCHC, we encourage honors administrators and staff to promote these awards and encourage qualified applicants to apply. All recipients of SRHC grants are encouraged to present the results of their projects or experiences at the following SRHC meeting. Strong preference is given to first-time applicants for this funding.

In order to receive funding, students from SRHC member institutions must be accepted into their program of interest. Student Stipends will be awarded on a rolling, first-come, first-served basis; the SRHC Executive Committee will determine individual funding amounts. The following documents must be emailed to the SRHC Executive Secretary-Treasurer David Coleman at David.Coleman@eku.edu no later than 3 weeks prior to the project registration deadline (applications received after the deadline will not be considered):

• An email to include: the student’s full name, email, mailing address, the name of his or her home institution, and the NCHC sponsored program that the student will be attending.
• A copy of the student’s NCHC acceptance letter or email.
• A letter of support from the student’s honors director or dean acknowledging that the funding will be used appropriately.

The Student Stipend check will be mailed directly to the qualified applicant.

SRHC STUDENT LEADER GRANTS

SRHC Student Leader Grants provide up to $700 for individual student members, or students from SRHC institutional members, who serve on the NCHC Board of Directors to travel to official meetings of the NCHC Board of Directors during the period between the annual NCHC conference meetings. All recipients of SRHC grants are encouraged to present the results of their projects or experiences at the following SRHC meeting.

To qualify, elected members of the NCHC board must submit the SRHC Student Leader Grant and reimbursement form by email to the SRHC Executive Secretary-Treasurer within 30 days of the first day when costs were incurred.
