In the spring of 2022, the Upper Midwest Honors Council voted to make available limited funding to aid schools in offsetting travel costs associated with the annual meeting each spring. Applications will be evaluated by members of the Executive Board and funding is capped at $250 per institution.
Applications will be reviewed based on the following criteria:
1. Size of available honors budget/funding
2. Distance from your institution to the host site
3. Number of students benefited from the award
For schools who seek financial assistance to offset their travel costs to the annual meeting, UHMC sponsors a modest grant program to assist student delegations. The application, due ONE WEEK prior to the annual meeting, can be found here
