Marian University’s Experiential Learning Grants Program enables students to develop knowledge, skills, and values from direct experiences outside a traditional academic setting. Experiential learning activities include internships, service learning, undergraduate research, study abroad, and other creative and professional work experiences. These experiences stimulate academic inquiry by promoting interdisciplinary learning, civic engagement, career development, cultural awareness, leadership, and other professional and intellectual skills.  Marian understands that financial obligations may be associated with some of these activities, and wants to assist in aiding students in their endeavors for academic growth.

To apply please fill out the application and submit all materials through email to the Office of Academic Affairs academicaffairs@marianuniversity.edu.  Incomplete forms will delay the application process and may be returned to you.

For more information about Experiential Learning Grants, please contact Bianca Birschbach, Assistant to the Provost at bybirschbach76@marianuniversity.edu or 920.923.7604.

They survived. These women are teachers, attorneys, doctors, nurses, actors, photographers, and writers.
