Applied Learning Travel Grant

Applied Learning Travel Grant Eligibility

Must be a currently matriculated SUNY New Paltz student, undergraduate or graduate student, in good academic standing (not on academic probation). Students are not eligible after their graduation. Preference will be given to students who are completing an internship, fieldwork, or student teaching experiences as a requirement for their major.

  • Must have completed a minimum of 12 credit hours at SUNY New Paltz.
  • Must have secured an off-campus unpaid/underpaid internship, fieldwork, student teaching, or curricular applied learning experience for the future by the time of application. No retroactive grants will be awarded.
  • The commute to the internship/applied learning experience must be at least 10 miles (one way).
  • Direct supervisor’s information must be included in the application. This information will be used to confirm the experience.
  • The experience must be supervised by someone at the organization’s site. The site supervisor cannot be a family member.
  • Students can only receive one grant and cannot receive both the Living Internship Stipend and the Travel Grant. 

Applied Learning Travel Grant Application

Spring 2024 Application Deadline: Friday, April 19th at 5:00pm.

Qualified and approved recipients will receive up to $500.

Award distribution

  • Staring in Fall 2024, the Applied Learning Travel Grant will be awarded in one payment at the mid-point of the internship/applied learning experience. The award will be approved during the mid-semester break and confirmation that all parties are actively participating in the internship/applied learning experience. Checks will be mailed to the recipient's permanent address. Checks are processed by the Office of Expenditures in Albany which may take several weeks to be processed.
  • Any international students who are selected must have an I-20 document authorized by the Center for International Programs in advance of starting the experience.
  • This grant may be considered taxable income by the IRS. It is the student's responsibility to determine if taxes are owed. Students should therefore consult a tax advisor regarding these grants.
  • SUNY New Paltz is not required to file (and will not file) a Form W-2 or Form 1099 for such grants.
