Funding Opportunities

Summer Research/Field Course/Internship Scholarship

CISAB awards two scholarships each year to help outstanding Animal Behavior majors at IU Bloomington with the costs of summer field courses, internships, or research experiences in fields relevant to the study of animal behavior.

The criteria for selecting awardees include their academic record, background and interest in the study of animal behavior, and the value of the proposed experience in the student’s study of animal behavior.

Awardees are expected to use funds from the scholarship to help defray costs of travel and fees for summer field courses or internships and must provide documentation of those costs and of acceptance/enrollment in the course/internship to receive the award.

Awards will typically be disbursed via the student’s bursar account. Applications for this award for Summer 2017 will be accepted beginning in January 2017 and will be due by March 15.

Advice to Students who have existing scholarships, grants, or aid packages.

Some scholarship, fellowship, and grant agencies stipulate that you cannot accept aid from other sources while their funding is in effect. Investigate this carefully before applying for this award. Otherwise, you might risk losing your original funding or having your award amount reduced.
