Student Opportunity Awards

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, Treuhaft Art Technology Funds, and Travel to Present Funds. Grants 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.  Equipment purchased with a student opportunity award becomes the property of Skidmore College upon the project's completion and must remain with the sponsoring department or program.
