Honors College DeLoach Scholarship

Filed under: Funding Opportunity @ 3:46 pm

The Oregon State University Honors College is now accepting applications to the DeLoach Work Scholarship program for winter and spring terms, 2019. The DeLoach program enables Oregon State faculty members to support undergraduates working at tasks that enhance students’ academic training by providing a significant learning experience. Strong preference will be given to proposals that involve cooperative student-faculty research and clearly relate to the instructional, outreach, or diversity goals of the university.


Applications must be submitted by a tenured/tenure-track or senior instructor rank faculty from any college. All Honors College students are eligible to participate. Maximum awards are $1,000, with an award period of winter and spring terms, 2019. Nominated students must be enrolled at least quarter-time through the duration of the award. In past cycles, review has been highly competitive, with fewer than 50% of applications receiving funding.


To apply, faculty supervisors must submit a proposal including the following to by Sunday, November 18th, 2018:

  • A one-page statement from the faculty supervisor describing the proposed project. Letters must also indicate how the project will support both the student’s training and the faculty member’s research and its relevance to the university’s instructional, outreach, and/or diversity goals; only projects that meet these requirements are eligible for DeLoach funding.
  • A one-page statement from the student(s) describing the importance of the proposed project in their education and training and any relevant previous experiences or preparation.
  • Endorsement from the faculty supervisor’s unit head, indicated by either signature on the faulty letter or separate email to the Honors College.


Additional details are available at Awards are paid as scholarships to students.


Some DeLoach proposals may be supported in whole or in part by the Chambers Environmental Research Fund. Established in 1977 in memory of Richard Chambers, a pioneer in Oregon environmental protection who developed some of the earliest anti-litter legislation, this fund is intended to foster projects or research in applied environmental enhancement and/or conservation involving the preservation or betterment of Oregon’s wilderness, natural resources, or quality of life.


The DeLoach Work Scholarship was created through the generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Daniel Barton DeLoach. Dr. DeLoach was an Oregon State faculty member from 1935 to 1949.

About ONAMI Graduate Internships in Startups:
ONAMI Graduate Internships in Startups (GIST) Program:  ONAMI will fund internships for qualified grad students or recent graduates at ONAMI portfolio companies for 6-9 months.  This is a great opportunity for a student to determine if the startup environment is an attractive career option. Experience to date has proven the internships beneficial to both company and student.

When a match is found (this is determined by the student and company), ONAMI will enter into an agreement with the company, and the student will become a company employee or contractor.  ONAMI will fund the internship at the rate of $25/hour, paid to the company.  The company will provide the intern with salary (at least $25/hour), supervision, training, materials and mentorship.   (Any additional compensation or benefits are the option of the company.)  ONAMI will fund the company up front for half of the internship.  Brief (non-confidential) monthly reports from the student, as well as a mid-term review by both company and student will determine if the internship will proceed. At that point, ONAMI will fund the remainder of the internship.

We look forward to hearing from students interested in the internships.

PROMISE Internship Program

Filed under: Funding Opportunity @ 10:58 am

Dear colleague,

The PROMISE internship program invites you to apply to be a mentor for a 2017 summer intern.

Mentors serve as guides by facilitating learning and providing direction for the PROMISE intern. The mentor-mentee relationship helps to build rapport, trust, and shared power allowing the team to co-create a robust, transformative learning, eight-week summer experience from June 26 – August 18, 2017.

The PROMISE program has undergone several revisions throughout the last year to better fit the needs of mentors and students while providing a valuable experience. Review new 2017 changes to the program. These revisions include changes to the application process and timeline, as well as emphasis on forming mentoring relationships that guide students in their personal development and professional growth.

More information about becoming a mentor can be found on the PROMISE program mentor page: The mentor application is due Tuesday, March 7 at 4:00pm.

The student application process will follow during April and requires mentor participation in presenting potential projects, meeting with students to discuss projects, and signing mentor approval forms for student applications.

PROMISE internships are important for OSU and Oregon communities because many PROMISE alumni become leaders in Oregon and beyond. This is also a powerful way we continue to build OSU’s great community and network of professionals. Many of our previous mentors have developed long-term working relationships with their interns, and even continued interns on for hire post-internship.

PROMISE is administered and supported by Diversity & Cultural Engagement within the Division of Student Affairs. For more information about the PROMISE program or updates visit:

For questions or more information contact:

Thank you,

Charlene Martinez, and the entire PROMISE Team
