The American Express Grant is intended to provide funding for clearly defined projects or experiences that enrich students' ndergraduate curricula. A wide range of projects merit funding and the Honors Council welcomes students' creativity in identifying issues, topics and endeavors that exist beyond the academic and programmatic boundaries of their college experience. Projects that receive funding should benefit the student, the college, and specific community interests through their intellectual engagement with particular human problems and questions.
The Honors Council reviews all applications for American Express Grants. Grants most likely to receive approval are those that make possible academic research, including the study of a humanitarian, artistic or spiritual pursuit that is outside the standard curricular and programmatic boundaries of the College.

stands as two of the best classes I have ever taken."
