English Opportunity Fund

The English Opportunity Fund, an endowed fund that provides a modest annual payout, is targeted for a specific purpose. Through small grants, this fund helps a wide range of worthy English Department students meet the demanding everyday costs of their education, including the sometimes overwhelming cost of books, computer supplies, and expenses when studying abroad, doing internships, or attending conferences off-campus. Applications are taken during the fall semester and awards made in January so that students will have funds at their disposal for the spring semester.
