Petsche Scholarship for Independent Research Abroad

The deadline for proposals is April 15, 2019.

Thanks to a generous endowment recently established by Alan Petsche and Bonnie Smith Petsche, the Honors College is pleased to offer in the 2019 summer semester a scholarship to support project-based independent research abroad. One award will be made in the summer in the amount of $3,500 to an Honors student who seeks to enhance his/her undergraduate academic experience by traveling abroad.

The Petsche Scholarship may not be applied to commercial tours or organized study abroad programs (whether or not they award credit, and whether they are sponsored by UT Arlington or other academic institutions or organizations). Instead, applicants will submit proposals describing their custom-designed research projects. Visits for the purpose of carrying out research in museums, libraries, archives, laboratories, and other institutions abroad during summer 2019 will be considered for funding.

Currently enrolled members of the Honors College in good standing who will be juniors or seniors in academic year of the proposed travel are eligible to apply for this award. Funds will be disbursed to student accounts in late spring 2019. Travel must take place during the summer semester, typically between May 15 and August 15, 2019.

The application and the requirements for application are in Mav Scholarshop.

The awardee will be obliged to submit a report upon his/her return describing the experience, goals met and unmet, and further plans (if any) related to the project.
