Kim T. Adamson Awards support month-long study in Honors College May Term Study Experience (MTSE) seminars that have an international component. These awards will be offered by competitive application and will be open to Honors College students who have demonstrated financial need. Awards will be up to $1,500 per person and not to exceed the total cost of the international study experience. Awards are only for 2024 and will be forfeited in the event a recipient is unable to attend.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Current matriculated (degree-seeking) Westminster University Honors College students in good standing
  • Students with demonstrated financial need as determined by FAFSA. If you did not file a FAFSA this year, include a written explanation explaining the circumstances surrounding your financial need.
  • Planning to enroll in an Honors College International MTSE in May 2024 (Honors College students enrolling in a non-Honors MTSE are eligible but will be given lower priority than those in Honors seminars, all other factors being equal.)
  • Recipients are required to give a presentation about their international study during the following semester.


The application will open Oct. 11, 2023. Applications will be accepted until Friday, Nov. 3, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. (MST).
