Grants

 

NTC grants typically fund academic projects and research, academic conference travel, internships (travel, transportation, and housing), some service projects, 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 Dean's Office. 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 NTC Dean's Office, but are only permitted to be awarded up to $1,500 per academic year, if funding is approved by the grant committee. For help with the grant application process, contact Melissa A. Weber, program manager of NTC grants and 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. 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 below for details.
