Jewell's Journey Grant is a distinctive experience providing the freedom and funding to truly make the college experience one-of-a-kind. Transformative experiences, academic pursuits and self-discovery embody the Jewell Journey we promise every student.

A Journey Grant encourages exploration, discovery, adventure and change. After completing the sophomore year, students may apply for a self-designed grant such as a research project, study-away experience, entrepreneurial opportunity, internship, civic engagement initiative or service. Journey Grants will be a minimum of $2,000, with the opportunity for additional funds awarded on a competitive basis to support great proposals.
