Field Period Scholarships

Keuka College encourages students to think “outside the box” when it comes to Field Periods; therefore, the College offers two scholarships to assist students with travel and other relevant costs:

Spiritual Exploration Field Period (SEFP) Grant

Spiritual Exploration Scholarship Fall 2012 Recipients: Mary Leet, Eric Detar (Chaplain), & Vincent Glanville

Spiritual Exploration Field Periods involve work or service in churches, missions, hospitals, hospices, and the like. They may also involve assisting churches or religious organizations in providing aid to needy individuals and groups, either in this country or overseas; or self reflection and exploration into your own spirituality.

The grant is funded by an Institutional Renewal Grant from The Rhodes Consultation on the Future of the Church-Related College.

All current students planning to complete a Field Period matching the above criteria are eligible to apply for the SEFP Grant during the semester prior to their Field Period.  Official deadlines for application materials will be posted around campus and available in the Center for Experiential Learning.  For more information please contact the Center for Experiential Learning.

Judith Oliver Brown Memorial Scholarship 2012-13 Recipients: (back row) Meghan Houlihan, Tyler Kroon, Diane DePrez, Britani Pruner (front row) Mattie Waldstein, & Kathryn Kostuk.

The Judith Oliver Brown Memorial Award honors Judy Brown, a French major who spent her junior year as a Norton Scholar at the University of Geneva in Switzerland and conducted her senior year Field Period at the Lavin Perfume Co. in New York City. A 1963 Keuka graduate, she died in 1986.

The award, supported by Brown’s family and the Class of ’63, is designed to assist students planning to pursue culturally-oriented Field Periods. Applicants must write an essay outlining their Field Period plans, how the funds will facilitate those plans, and how the experience will benefit them, the site, and the community.

All current students planning to complete a culturally-oriented Field Period are eligible to apply for the Judith Oliver Brown Memorial Award the fall semester prior to their Field Period.  Official deadlines for application materials will be posted around campus and available in the Center for Experiential Learning.  For more information please contact the Center for Experiential Learning.
