The Upper Midwest Regional Honors Council has funding opportunities available for Honors students who wish to participate in either of the following opportunities:
- Partners in the Parks: Partners in the Parks is an outdoor experiential learning program sponsored by Southern Utah University and Cedar Breaks National Monument in cooperation with the National Collegiate Honors Council. Partners in the Parks projects at national parks across the country offer unique opportunities for collegiate honors students and faculty to visit areas of the American landscape noted for their beauty, significance and lasting value.

- Honors Semesters: "Health without Borders: A Winterim Peru": Dec. 30, 2015 - Jan. 20, 2016
A joint offering of The Honors College at Florida International University and the National Collegiate Honors Council Semesters Committee, this winterim is a unique opportunity for students to engage in experiential learning that emphasizes independent research projects focused on the contrast between urban and rural areas of the Peruvian Amazon. An overview of the people and environment of the Amazon will provide students the necessary background to design and implement interdisciplinary projects during their stay in Iquitos, Peru (the major city of the western Amazon) and at the Madre Selva Biological Station (Orosa River).
