A core benefit of being a Northeastern University Stamps Scholar is the opportunity to extend your learning, increasing your impact from Boston to beyond. To make that possible, we provide enrichment funds for you to use in crafting your unique path through your undergraduate years. Enrichment funds are intended to support your efforts to grow in the three core areas of the Stamps Scholarship: scholarship, leadership, and community.
Enrichment funds can be used to support costs associated with a wide variety of activities, including (but not limited to):
- Participating in approved study abroad experiences
- Attending professional conferences
- Undertaking unpaid co-ops or internships
- Pursuing community-oriented and/or leadership projects
Enrichment funds can also be used to support research and creative endeavor projects. If you wish to undertake a research or creative endeavor project or if you have been selected to present research or creative work at a conference, please do not apply using the application linked on this page. Instead, please identify the PEAK Award that best suits your project and complete the application for that award.
All funding requests must be made at least a month prior to the proposed activity and must be reviewed and approved by the URF office. If you receive an award, you will be asked to complete a reflection upon the conclusion of the activity funded by the award.
