Academic Funding Opportunities

The Lisska Center for Scholarly Engagement serves as a funding hub for student research and travel for academic enhancement purposes, such as making a presentation at an academic conference, attending a workshop, or accompanying a professor on a research trip. We also provide funds to faculty members looking to take students on a class field trip.

We are committed to helping all students take advantage of valuable opportunities, regardless of financial need. Grants are made on a rolling basis by the Lisska Center staff. The Lisska Center for Scholarly Engagement administers four funds:

Undergraduate Research Fund

The Undergraduate Research Fund provides grants of up to $500/student for academic-year and senior research projects.

Student Academic Travel Fund

The Student Academic Travel Fund provides grants of up to $500/student to cover expenses for students presenting a paper or poster at an academic conference

Academic Enhancement Travel Fund

A new Academic Enhancement Fund, currently in the pilot phase, will provide grants of up to $1,000 over a student’s Denison career to support individual or small groups of students wishing to travel with a Denison faculty or staff member to conduct research, attend a conference or workshop (where they are not presenting a paper), or similar activity not covered by other sources of funding

Course Enrichment Fund

The Course Enrichment Fund (formerly called the Academic Enhancement Fund), provides grants of up to $500/course to faculty members looking to supplement a regular semester course with a field trip or similar activity
