Additional Grant Opportunities for U.S. Scholars and Students

The Lois Roth Endowment for U.S. Students

Program Description

The Lois Roth Endowment promotes and encourages dialogue across national, linguistic, disciplinary and cultural boundaries, focusing on countries that were especially important to Lois in her life and career. The Lois Roth Endowment provides supplementary support to one American Fulbrighter working in Australia each year. The grant seeks to reinforce the service rendered by Fulbright by offering supplementary support for projects in the arts, humanities and social sciences.

Project support is awarded only in tandem with primary funding agencies and assists students in taking advantage of opportunities that deepen their international experiences.

Application instructions include a one page statement that outlines the project proposal, ideal dates and include a brief budget indicating how the grant monies will be used; best estimates will serve where you cannot obtain exact figures.
