The current funding priorities of the Individual Program of study in a major all center around supporting our students' learning experience.
Through a generous gift from George M. and Jennifer D. Stone family we are able to offer a limited number of scholarships to students with financial need. The Stone family has also established a fund to support ICP students on summer experiences such as internships, field research, service projects, and study abroad. Recent recipients for these funds have worked with homeless youth through the Ruth Ellis Center in Detroit; helped protect the human rights of refugees through the Mizan Law Group in Amman, Jordan; participated in the Global Intercultural Experience for Undergraduates in Viet Nam and Chile; and helped to install a water filtration system at a rural community center in Pantanal, Brazil.
However, more support is needed. Internships and field experiences have become an indispensable part of a well-rounded liberal arts education, allowing students to apply what they've learned in the classroom in real world settings. I never want our students creativity and passion to change the world to be limited by financial concerns.
Please consider joining the Stone family in supporting these outstanding students!
