Student Resources for Funding COP
Watch your emails for notices from academic and other departments for scholarship opportunities.
Discuss scholarship opportunities with your professors; they may know about additional resources.
Scholarships For CSB Students
- COP Travel Award for CSB Students (same as above scholarship link; application deadline is the same as the deadline for the COP application)
- The Robson Scholarship for CSB Students of Public Policy (deadline typically in March)
Scholarship For SJU Students
- Scholarships for SJU students are made possible by gifts from generous donors in support of SJU student participation in the annual COP (same as above scholarship link; application deadline is the same as the deadline for the COP application).
Set up an appointment with a financial aid counselor in the CSB or SJU financial aid office to discuss options, such as:
- Private student loans
- Using federal student loan eligibility for the trip if you are not using it all for Fall or Spring semester
Resources for scholarships and aid outside CSB/SJU
Resources for external scholarship ideas from the McCarthy Center
CSB and SJU Senates
Students can submit an agenda item/funding request to the appropriate senate to request funding support for traveling to the COP. Be prepared to present a cohesive budget and answer questions regarding the impact of traveling to the COP on you and/or the CSB/SJU community.
