The Trustee Opportunity Travel Grant program, available to US citizens and permanent residents of the US, is one of several programs designed to encourage first-generation college students*, African-American, Asian-American, Latino/Hispanic-American, and Native American students to visit campus and learn more about Kenyon.
The grants cover up to 90% of the lowest advertised airfares (or up to $500) or $50 to offset driving costs. Eligibility for the program is determined by academic criteria and reported racial background. Students who are first-generation colleges students are also eligible to apply for a travel grant, regardless of reported background. Complete the online travel grant application form or download a travel grant application.
As a high school senior, you may use a travel grant during the fall semester, either for an individual visit or for our Cultural Connections program. During a typical campus visit, you will sit in on classes, have an interview in the admissions office, tour the campus, and meet students and faculty. You may also choose to stay overnight with a student host. Overnight hosts are available Sunday or Thursday nights.
Please call Barb Cannon at 800-848-2468 if you have questions about the program. The deadline (for high school seniors graduating in 2015) to submit the travel grant application is Monday, December 15, 2014, and the deadline to use an approved travel grant is Sunday, February 15, 2015.
