There is a universal grant application form for all grant programs administered by the NTC Dean's Office. However, if there is a specific grant program you are interested in, you are welcome to (but not required to) note it on your application form. Students may apply for multiple grants from the NTC Dean's Office, but are only permitted to receive one NTC grant per academic year, if funding is approved by the grant committee. For help with the grant application process, please call Melissa A. Weber, manager of NTC grants and programs, at 504-314-2829, email, or visit Hebert Hall 104, located in the Newcomb-Tulane College suite, directly across from the Honors Program office and next to the Center for Academic Equity.

Grants are reviewed on a monthly cycle. Submit your application by 5:00 p.m. on the 15th of the month to receive a decision on the final day of that month (September through November and February through April only). If you are applying for funding for a summer project, you may submit your application in February, March, or April. Some grant programs only review applications at certain times; see each grant description for details.

Year-Round Grant Programs

The following grant programs can be applied to projects during the academic year or during the summer. 

Newcomb-Tulane College Dean’s Grant Program

The Newcomb-Tulane College Dean’s Grant Program allows Newcomb-Tulane College students to obtain funding for academic research, projects, and cocurricular activities that may not be eligible for other NTC Dean's Office grant programs. A number of Dean's Grants have been sponsored by CELT (Center for Engaged Learning and Teaching), and are dedicated to funding internship costs, such as travel, housing, and transportation.

Judith and Morris Henkin Memorial Travel Scholarships

Examples of appropriate projects include travel (domestic or international) for research, internships, service projects, or other cocurricular programs.

Georges Lurcy Grant Program

Lurcy Grants support student research or artistic projects by students in the School of Liberal Arts (SLA). Projects must be housed in a department or program in SLA, and eligible students must be doing a major in SLA.

Liberal Arts Research Awards

Liberal Arts Research Awards provide grants of up to $1500 for individuals or $3500 for groups to support student research and scholarship in the liberal arts.

Timothy Sykes Daytrading Award for the Talented

Tim Sykes (B.A. 2003) established this fund during his junior year at Tulane after great success in daytrading. In establishing it, Tim sought to recognize and nurture talented individuals whose abilities and accomplishments may not be in traditional areas of endeavor. There are many ways to be “successful” in today’s society and this award acknowledges young people with unique interests, passions, and accomplishments.
