Scholar Enrichment Grants

Each Richmond Scholar and Oliver Hill Presidential Scholar is eligible for an Enrichment Grant of up to $3,000 to support a faculty-mentored activity which enhances the scholar's academic experience. While a wide range of activities will be considered for grant funding, the student must present a strong case for how the experience contributes to their overall academic or professional trajectory.

Scholars must submit a formal grant application by one of three published deadlines; after the grant is complete, scholars are required to submit a post-grant report, detailing how the experience met their objectives and enhanced their overall academic or professional experience.

Scholars should submit the application which best corresponds to their proposed project:
