Lawrence has been supported by a tremendous number of alumni, parents and other constituents. One way many of these individuals have given back is through their financial contributions to support the experiential learning of students in the areas of internships, volunteering, research and other areas of investigation into their life after Lawrence. Below is information about some possible sources of funding. If you have questions about these funds please contact The Office of Career, Life, and Community Engagement or click the appropriate links to learn more about how to apply.
Eloise Frick Cherven Memorial Grant Program
This fund was established in 1993 in memory of Eloise Frick Cherven, Lawrence University Class of 1976, by her family, friends, and classmates. Eloise was a dedicated geology major who later earned a Master of Science degree from California State University at Los Angeles and forged a successful career in petroleum and environmental geology. The fund supports student projects and research with preference given to activities in the field of geology. Funds can be used to cover costs associated with research projects including Senior Experience projects, program fees, books/materials, or travel.
The Harold B. Zuehlke and Richard W. Zuehlke Research Fund for Physical Science
Provides students with a wide range of academic opportunities that can include Senior Experience projects, field research, conferences, lectures, symposia, interdisciplinary endeavors, and off-campus study in the physical sciences (chemistry, geology, physics). Funds can be used for travel, books, supplies, equipment and other needs as appropriate. Award amounts vary, depending on the level of the fund. Deadline: mid-February.
