O'Leary Grants for Students in the College of Arts & Sciences

Studying abroad offers students a valuable combination of learning opportunities and cultural experiences that contribute to a well-rounded undergraduate education. The O’Leary International Travel Grant Program provides two types of financial awards to help offset travel costs for students in College of Arts & Sciences: (1) grants of up to $2,000 for A&S majors participating in semester or year-long study abroad programs*; and (2) grants of $600 for A&S majors or graduate students enrolled in College of Arts & Sciences courses that include a short-term international travel component. (NOTE: Due to COVID-19, the short-term travel grant program is temporarily suspended.)

*Le Moyne College approved programs are eligible, with preference given to applicants participating in Le Moyne College affiliated programs.

Travel grants are awarded on a competitive basis with strong consideration given to the applicant’s financial need and academic record. Grant recipients are required to participate in a project or activity that promotes international travel opportunities to the Le Moyne community.

Eligible students will receive an application with the email message inviting them to apply for a travel grant.

This grant program is administered by the Office of the Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences and funded by a gift from the estate of Dr. Harriet L. O’Leary, professor emerita of Foreign Languages and Literatures. Questions may be directed to Dr. Dixie Blackley, Associate Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, at black_d@lemoyne.edu.
