Richter Grants

Study Italian cathedrals. Learn centuries-old brewing techniques in Germany. Help bring water to an impoverished Guatemalan village. Examine how arts criticism affects prestigious awards. Just a few examples of how Richter Grants have given North Central students the opportunity to pursue their academic passions in fascinating locales.

The program grants up to $5,000 for individual student research. North Central undergraduates, across academic disciplines, are annually awarded ten of thousands of dollars in grants.

North Central’s participation in the Richter Grant Program began in 1977 through funding from The Paul K. and Elizabeth Cook Richter Trusts. Since that time, hundreds of North Central students have used these grants.

Current North Central students can find information on applying for a Richter Grant on CardinalNet under Academics/Student Research.
