Office of Academic Advising
Student Opportunity Funds
Skidmore College offers several opportunities for students to receive grants in support
of research, creative projects, and travel to present at conferences or juried exhibitions.
These grants include Student Opportunity Project Funds, Travel-to-Present Awards, and Treuhaft Art Technology Grants. We also administer the Levine Internship Award, an award than supports internship experiences in American government, politics,
and law. Funds are awarded on a competitive basis according to the quality of the
proposal and the importance of the proposed activity to the student's academic plan.
All awards are assessed by the Associate Dean of the Faculty for Academic Policy &
Advising and a faculty review panel.
Please submit your completed opportunity fund application to Pat Choukeir in Starbuck Center 201. If you have any questions, please send an email to Pat Choukeir or call 518-580-5725.
