Johnson Opportunity Grant
The Johnson Opportunity Grant program provides funds to support W&L student projects all across the country and around the world. The grants are awarded on a competitive basis and are open to any rising junior or senior at W&L.* The grants cover travel, living expenses, and other costs associated with the proposed project or summer activity.
Grant applicants must arrange, describe and justify a worthwhile summer project. It might be an unpaid internship on Capitol Hill or an internship abroad. It might involve participation in a national or international student conference. It could include research travel that will help you become a leader in your chosen field of study. Or it might be a service project that will demonstrate your commitment to community leadership. The possibilities are broad and the criteria for evaluation of applications will include both your academic accomplishments at Washington and Lee and the potential for leadership development that your project makes possible.
*NOTE: These grants are only open to non-Johnson Scholars. Johnson Scholars should contact Elizabeth Knapp to enquire about Johnson Enhancement Funds.
