Student Grant Opportunities

The following in-house funds have been made available to current Harvey Mudd students, regardless of their class year.

Center for Environmental Studies Grants

Harvey Mudd College’s Center for Environmental Studies holds an annual competition for grants to support student research during the summer. This is an excellent opportunity for students in all fields to pursue leading-edge research on socially relevant topics with faculty mentors at HMC or at other leading institutions of higher education. We typically fund about three to five students per summer.

Shanahan Project Fund

The Shanahan Endowed Student-Directed Project Fund, established in December, 2005, with a gift of $500,000 from Harvey Mudd trustee R. Michael Shanahan and his wife, Mary, is designed to promote leadership and teamwork among students. This fund supports projects of an academic or co-curricular nature, as well as those that involve student-directed research.

Student Travel Grants

Students can apply to the Dean of Faculty’s Office for funding for travel.  Funds will be given out in $500 (domestic) or $1000 (international) increments. The criteria for requests are:

  • Student traveling with a faculty member to a scientific meeting
  • Student must present the work as a poster or oral presentation

To request funds, the faculty advisor should fill out the student travel request form.

Faculty advisors or students granted funds will be required to send a paragraph summary of the event to describe the experience, benefit, etc. to ADREL (Karl Haushalter, haushalter@hmc.edu) upon return.
