  • individual research,
  • study abroad,
  • or unpaid internship experiences.

Awards may range from $500 to up to $2,000 per individual depending on the scale and scope of the project or activity proposed. All Honors College students in good standing who are making good progress toward completing or have completed the Honors College citation are eligible to apply.

These awards are made possible by the generosity and vision of UMD Honors College alumni Daniel Rochkind (’98) and Carly Rochkind. It is their wish that these merit-based awards be made in consideration of advancing underrepresented groups in the Honors College. Decisions will include careful consideration of proposed projects that relate to the advancement of underrepresented groups and the concerns of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
