Grant Opportunities

Grants Available for Wheaton Students

Eberhart '68 Art Travel Award

This award is an overseas and travel grant in memory of Wheaton alumna, Patty Eberhart, '68. The award, is given to support study for up to six weeks during the summer. Smaller amounts are also available for study opportunities of shorter duration. This award is intended to cover the recipient's expenses, which may include travel, housing, meals, innoculations, etc. The call for Eberhart proposals is sent out mid-semester in the spring, and is open to all Art History and Studio Art majors. Questions about the Eberhart Grant should be directed to the department Chair.

Wheaton Foundation Awards

These grants, generally of no more than $250 each, are intended to underwrite expenses connected to academic work beyond normal requirements in a specific course (research expenses, materials, etc.), and are awarded twice a year by the Committee on Admission and Academic Standing. Applications go to the Advising Center and require the support of the faculty member overseeing the work.

Wheaton Fellows

The Wheaton Fellow Program grants stipends to students to pursue projects of their own creation on or off campus over the summer. Qualifying projects may include: unpaid internships, community service, research in which the student is the primary designer of a project which has an informal Wheaton sponsor, or other self-initiated research leading to or as part of an Independent Study course. Other kinds of projects may qualify for support, and students are encouraged to pursue innovative project ideas and to design their own projects in consultation with the Filene Center, which will provide forms and detailed guidelines. (Student/facullty research on projects in which the faculty member is the designer or " Principal Investigator," however, will be funded as Mars Fellowships--see below) All continuing students, except (in the summer) Trustee and Community Scholars (who already have summer stipends as part of their scholarships), are eligible to apply.
