Hobson Wildenthal Honors College at UT Dallas

Victor L. Worsfold Grant Program Fund

Victor Worsfold Grants support student-led service activities that benefit the UT Dallas, local, and global community. Named after long-time UT Dallas School of Arts and Humanities faculty member Dr. Victor Worsfold, the grants are established by the Eugene McDermott Scholars Program Alumni Association, a 501 (c) (3) organization, and are intended to fund projects that target the broad array of challenges that our communities face.

Students can apply individually or in groups, and the grants are not limited to any one type of community work or discipline. The Worsfold grants can range from $250 to $1,000 per project, depending on the proposed budget and needs of the project.
