An unusual and important feature of the Nancy Susan Reynolds, Guy T. Carswell, Graylyn, and Joseph G. Gordon scholarships is the summer grant program that supports research, study, and travel. These scholars have three summers in which to undertake projects funded at up to $5,000 per year. Scholars consult with faculty, the scholarship officers, and others to plan a project with an educational purpose. Approximately twenty such project grants are awarded annually to scholarship students. Recent summer projects include:
