Oldenborg International Research and Travel Grants offer financial support to help cover expenses for international research for a senior thesis or senior exercise. Proposed projects must have received prior departmental approval. A selection committee will review grant proposals and make grant awards. Awards may be made in varying amounts up to a total of $4,000. Grant awardees present a summary of their research and experiences during a special student research presentation (Oldenborg Luncheon Colloquium) held in spring semester during Family Weekend.

The deadline for the 2018 Oldenborg Grant application will be Friday, March 9, at 4 p.m.  

Who Can Apply?

Pomona College Juniors (rising Seniors) may apply for funding to complete research toward the senior thesis/senior exercise during the summer break.
