Sullivan Awards

The Honors College has financial awards available for Honors students who need help funding their research or creative projects; paying for travel and living expenses related to conducting research; for living expenses related to unpaid internships; and for university sponsored study abroad programs.  Students from all disciplines and majors are eligible. 

There are two categories of the Sullivan Awards.  All proposals must be reviewed by a UT faculty member, with an accompanying letter of support for the project. The proposal must also include a brief description of the project, the expected outcome of the work, and an estimated itemized budget.

Application forms for both awards are available at the Honors College main office in MacKinnon Hall (Room 2000); and at the links below.


The Sullivan Fellowship awards funding amounts up to $1,400.  These awards are intended to facilitate travel to conferences; research sites, museums, or libraries; to cover living expenses while conducting extended research projects; or to assist with expenses related to unpaid internships (such as The Washington Center Internships). 

The application deadline for the upcoming Spring and Summer 2015 terms is Wednesday, October 28, 2015. 

Sullivan Fellowship Application


Honors students involved in various research activities requiring small amounts of funding (amounts up to $250) are encouraged to apply for a Small Sullivan Grant.

This grant can be used to cover, among other things, the costs of purchasing materials and equipment related to one’s research or special project; funds may be used for paying for Xeroxing, mailing surveys, printing posters, framing art work, buying lab supplies, or short trips to regional conferences.

Applications for the Small Grants are taken on an ongoing basis, and proposals must include a description of the student’s research or project; an itemized budget; a current student transcript; and a letter of support from your faculty mentor. For further information, contact Dr. Larry Connin at or by phone at 419-530-6037; or the Honors College Office at 419-530-6030.
