Other Cornell Funding

There are many ways you can find support and funding at Cornell for your research and travel! In addition to Southeast Asia Program and Einaudi Center funding opportunities, you can seek out support for your travel, off-campus experiences, and other projects from a variety of campus sources.

If you would like to receive regular updates about SEAP funding deadlines, events, career opportunities, and more, be sure to fill out our student form. SEAP has curated this list of Cornell funding sources that will be particularly relevant for those with an interest in Southeast Asia.

Off-Campus Opportunity Fund

The Off-Campus Opportunity Fund is a common application for students seeking financial support for off-campus experiences. OCOF is predominantly for short-term programs when financial aid is less available. The fund consolidates the application awarding process of four previously distinct grants offered through: 

  • Global Cornell: Undergraduate Student Travel Grants
  • Office of Global Learning: Global Encounters Scholarship
  • Engaged Cornell: Community-Engaged Student Travel Grant Program
  • Office of Academic Diversity Initiatives (OADI): Student Individuals Funding Sponsorship

Application deadline: The deadline has passed for this year.

Asian Studies Summer Study, Research, and Travel Grants

Through the Asian Studies Summer Study, Research, and Travel Grants, students have the opportunity to spend part of a summer in an Asian country with a grant of up to $3,000 for travel and living expenses. Applicants may be from any college or major, but must have a proposed project that relates to their area of study. Priority will be given to students who have completed two years of language work in the relevant language prior to the intended travel, have no prior travel experience in the area, and are Asian studies majors or minors.

Application deadline: The deadline has passed for this year.

Student Assembly Student Experience Grant

The Student Assembly Summer Experience Grant provides financial support for students to complete summer unpaid or minimally paid career-related experiences. It helps students who would not be able to take on a summer career-related experience or would have a difficult time doing so. First years, sophomores, and juniors in all undergraduate colleges are eligible to apply.

Application deadline: The deadline has passed for this year.

Harrop and Ruth Freeman Fellowship

Application deadline: The deadline has passed for this year.

Janet McKinley '74 Family Grant

The Janet McKinley ’74 Family Grant is open to all Cornell sophomores for the purpose of assisting students in pursuing interesting, provocative, and entrepreneurial summer projects, with the intent of having a direct and lasting impact on many generations of Cornell students.
