Newcomb-Tulane College grants typically fund academic-based research, conference travel, internships (travel, transportation, and housing), and other projects related to one's studies or interests. See the FAQ for more info.

There is a universal OrgSync grant application form for all grant programs administered by the NTC Office of Academic Programs. Click the "Instructions & Application Forms" button above to learn more. 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 and receive multiple grants from the Office of Academic Programs, but are only permitted to be awarded up to $1,000 per academic year, if funding is approved by the grant committee. [The exceptions to this rule are a) the Gordon Summer Fellowship, which awards up to $4,000; b) Henkin Grants, which award $1,200; c) Taylor Grants, which award up to $1,500 for international travel.] For help with the grant application process, contact the program manager of the Office of Academic Programs at ntcgrants@tulane.edu, 504-314-2829, or by visiting Cudd Hall 201D.

Grants are reviewed on a monthly cycle during the fall and spring semesters, while classes are in session. (Applications are not accepted in December or during the summer semester.) 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. Summer internship funding applications are accepted in March and April. Please review each description below for details about grants available from the Office of Academic Programs.
