The University's Committee on Scholarships, Awards and Student Aid has established the following additional stipulations as necessary for the administration of this Scholarship Award consistent with the intentions of Ms. Phillips.
- The Phillips Travel Scholarship provides an opportunity for the financial support of a student's personal enrichment and growth through the process of travel and is not intended to support expenses of an organized, "study abroad" program. The Scholarship may, however, be used for travel supplemental to such a "study abroad" program. The Scholarship is for the support of an individual student, traveling either independently or as part of a group.
- Recipients of the Scholarship will be selected on the basis of formal written proposals specifying the goals and the intended use of the funds with consideration being given to both academic proposals and experiential proposals. Examples of previously funded proposals include working on organic farms, exploring settings of children’s facility and interning with an Irish fiddle-maker. Finalists will be interviewed by the Selection Committee.
- Recipients will be required to execute a form releasing the University and any of its employees and agents from any liability for any injuries or property damage suffered by the recipient in connection with the travel.
A written report will be required from a recipient of the Scholarship within one month of the completion of travel. The report should describe the travel and reflect on the accomplishment of the goals stated in the proposal. The report will be reproduced and maintained for access by other members of the University community, including persons contemplating future application for this Scholarship.
