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.


Magellan Apprentice Grant

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. 

Passport Travel Grant

This financial award, offered through the Study Abroad Office, allows up to $2000 for funding a Maymester or summer study abroad experience. More information can be found on the SAO's scholarship page.

Professional Development Grant

Only available to Capstone Fellows, this is a $500 financial award to help students' professional development. This grant can cover a variety of opportunities including conference fees, printing costs and professional membership fees. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. 


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 Scholar and are interested in other funding opportunities, we work closely with the Office of Fellowships and Scholar Programs, a resource on campus designed to connect students to hundreds of esteemed, national-level fellowships and scholarships. They make it easy to learn more about the application process online, and you can also make an appointment.
