Current students are eligible to apply for H-SC funding to help them further specific academic and professional experiences while pursuing their bachelor’s degree at H-SC.

Please note that H-SC funding is limited and that the following apply:

  • Funding may be awarded as stipends, reimbursements, or applied directly to the student's H-SC account toward program fees, as permitted by the specific award.
  • There may be tax implications for any H-SC awarded funding.
  • Compass funding is available only to students who started their degree in the fall of 2019 or later, and who are completing an experiential learning requirement through a Compass course as part of their specific academic or professional experience. These grants may take financial need into account, and are capped at $2,500.  Students who have received one Compass grant may receive lower priority for future Compass grant applications.  See below for links to Compass funding opportunities in the Ferguson Career Center and the Office of Global Education.
