The Trustee Opportunity Travel Grant program, available to U.S. citizens, permanent residents of the United States, and DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients, is one of several programs designed to encourage first-generation college students,* African American, Asian American, Hispanic/Latino/a, and Native American students to visit campus and learn more about Kenyon.
Travel grants allow prospective students to fly in from all over the U.S. to experience Kenyon's hilltop campus and community. The grant will cover airfare to and from the campus or mileage reimbursement for those within driving distance. Eligibility for the program is determined by academic criteria and reported racial background. Students who are first-generation college students also are eligible to apply for a travel grant, regardless of reported background.
The travel grant covers all transportation costs to campus for our Cultural Connections fly-in program, or students may use their travel grant for one of three other campus visit options:
Please wait to register for a visit until you have heard back from the Office of Admissions regarding your travel grant application decision.
