The Echols Program provides financial support for independent research and scholarship through a number of means. The Ingrassia Family Echols Scholars Research Fund was founded in January 2009 by an Endowment Gift from Timothy J. Ingrassia. The Fund offers financial support to Echols Scholars organizing a research project under the supervision of a faculty member that requires personal expenditures (stipend support), travel, and/or research supplies costs.
Eligibility Criteria/ Scholarship Guidelines
The Kenneth N. and Barbara B. Adatto Scholarship is granted annually to an Echols Scholar of any year or major from the state of Louisiana. The criteria include the quality, inventiveness, and integrity of the student's academic program and intellectual life, as well as his or her contribution to the academic community of the University.
Applications for the above scholarships are emailed out to eligible Scholars several weeks prior to the deadlines.
Unfortunately, the Echols Scholars Program cannot offer scholarships or financial assistance to incoming Echols Scholars.
