Owen and Frances Tate Memorial Fund for Student Learning

The purpose of this fund is to honor the memories of Owen and Frances Tate, and to support student-learning activities at UMM that do not have other funding sources available. The awards cover up to $500 of actual out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the student, after applying other resources, not to exceed 50% of the total expenses. Students are expected to secure funding for the other half of their expenses from other sources, including personal sources, the Bos Research Fund Award, or other campus and divisional sources. The funds are awarded to cover travel expenses for students presenting scholarly work at symposia and professional meetings, or engaging in artistic activities, research projects, or performances outside of the UMM campus community that will showcase the University of Minnesota, Morris to a broader learning community.
All students are eligible to apply, including previous recipients who may apply for a second award from the fund, although first-time applications will be favored over previous recipients. Two awards of up to $500 each will be given each year. The Dean will announce a call for applications each Spring semester.
