OPPORTUNITIES FUND GRANTS
Macaulay students receive grants to study abroad or gain professional experience as interns or research assistants. This funding comes from the generous contributions of corporate partners and private philanthropists.
Opportunities Fund grants are the most vital means of corporate support for Macaulay students, because while classroom education opens their eyes to the world, hands on learning gives them the power to change it.
HOW IT WORKS: Private organizations can create named grants of $2,500 to $5,000 to support our students and express their own institutional values. Our Academic Affairs team designs a selection matrix and evaluates student applicants. Innovation, entrepreneurship, academic excellence, and public service are frequently-cited attributes.
Students receiving named grants have the opportunity to meet their corporate sponsors at a special reception. Sponsors may request outcomes after the completion of study abroad, internship or research work.
