Experiential Learning Scholarship Fund

The Experiential Learning Scholarship Fund (formerly the Research and Creative Scholarship Fund) was created in the 2015-2016 Academic Year after your student government, ASUM, passed its $1.00/Semester “Research Fee” through a student referendum in spring of 2015. The Fund is composed of student-fee money, and annual contributions from Experiential Learning and Career Success, the Office for Research and Creative Scholarship, the Washington Corporation. Office of the Provost and Experiential Learning and Career Success. The ELSF supports students in participating in research, creative works, travel, internships, service, studying away or participating in professional development.
