The Lifetime Experience Grant program, funded with the generous support of the WKU Sisterhood, is open to students in all majors across all campuses. It is designed to help students become more competitive for national scholarships by supporting research, international study, creative activities, student-led engagement efforts, or other scholarly activities. The goal of the grant program is to fund unique experiences where students will be engaged in their disciplines outside of the classroom. These grants are meant to allow students to pursue their big dreams, attain their academic and professional goals, and increase their competitiveness for national scholarships.
In the past, students have used these grants to pursue internships in their field in the U.S. and abroad, gain training in their discipline not available at WKU, complete service projects in the U.S. and abroad, and conduct research. Recipients must meet with an adviser in the Office of Scholar Development and apply for a national or international scholarship. Preference will be given to students planning to apply for at least one of the following national scholarships: Boren, Critical Language, Fulbright, Gilman, Goldwater, Marshall, Mitchell, National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, Rhodes, Gates Cambridge, Truman, Udall. Additionally, students must present their projects at the WKU Student Research Conference or another appropriate venue.
Students may apply for up to $3,000.
