Student Horizon Fund

The Student Horizon Fund provides financial assistance to students pursuing activities outside the classroom that enhance their educational experience. These activities can include academic competitions, international events or formal participation in conferences. The activities must occur while the student(s) are actively registered at the university.

In total, the balance in the Student Horizon Fund endowment is over $500,000.
