With the objective of significantly enhancing the academic, professional, personal and spiritual development of each Stonehill student, we are making available Student Opportunity Awards. These funds, which are made available through the generous support of donors to the College and a grant from the Davis Educational Foundation*, are available to students (primarily but not exclusively) with demonstrated financial need to subsidize the costs associated with their participation in a wide range of high-impact learning activities, such as but not limited to:
- Local, domestic and international internships
- Study abroad
- Faculty- or staff-mentored research or projects
- Attendance at conferences, meetings, and workshops to present on work done or for professional development purposes
- H.O.P.E. trips
- Travel Learning Communities
- Graduate and professional school standardized entrance exam prep courses and/or application expenses
- Professional Certification Preparation (i.e., coursework, materials or other training) and/or application expenses
