New Course: Research Grants and Scholarships

An Open Invitation to All DePaul Students

From the DePaul University Honors Program

Spring 2017

Do you want to live and study abroad and serve as a cultural ambassador? Do you want to learn more about applying for prestigious national scholarships? Would you like to get dedicated assistance in crafting an eye-catching personal statement and research proposal? DePaul has a course for you!

This spring quarter DePaul is offering a section of HON 300 Honors Research Seminar: Research Grants and Scholarships devoted to helping students apply for prestigious national scholarships such as the Boren, Fulbright, Marshall and Truman awards. These fully-funded scholarships provide students with living and travel allowances so they can reside abroad while learning languages, teaching English, or carrying out an independent research project.

HON 300 is a two-credit course.  Enrollment is open to all students.  If you are enrolled in 12-16 credits, adding this section of HON 300 does not add to your tuition expenses.

The course will meet on alternating Fridays, 10:00-1:00, on the following dates:

April 7
April 21
May 5
May 19
June 2

HON300 will be taught by Professor Phillip Stalley, a member of the Political Science Department and DePaul’s Fulbright Program Advisor.

Receiving one of these awards means instant recognition as a future leader in your field, and can help launch your career. Whether you receive the scholarship or not, the mere act of applying offers a number of benefits.  The skills you learn in HON300 will help you to:

  • reflect and articulate your core values and interests
  • learn to present yourself in a concise, professional manner and
  • gain a better sense of what you can do with the knowledge you have gained at DePaul

Registration for this course must be done through the Honors Program. If you have any questions about this course or would like to enroll, please contact Phillip Stalley at or email the Honors Program Associate Director, Nancy Grossman
