Undergraduate Student Scholar
This program provides a stipend to support undergraduate students carrying out research, scholarship and creative activities, as appropriate in their chosen discipline. The award is designed to provide a stipend to student researchers directly and is not intended to defray the cost of undertaking the project (such as travel, supplies, and other materials necessary to conduct the project); however if the student elects to use the stipend in this manner, they can do so.
Deadlines: For the 2012-2013 academic year deadlines will be October 1, December 3, February 4 and March 25; applications will be reviewed within three weeks of submission.
Funding limit: Award is $500. We anticipate funding up to two awards for each funding cycle.
Faculty mentorship: All projects must have a faculty advisor involved with the execution and supervision of the project. The role of the advisor will vary depending on the nature of the project.
Dissemination of work: All funded projects are expected to be publicly disseminated at the Celebration of Student Scholarship in the April following the research. If this will not be possible, please consult Susan Larsona bout other dissemination options. Application materials for funded applications will be shared with the Office of Communications.
Application: Please use the following link to complete your application:
You will be asked for the following:
- Contact information
- Title and proposed timeline for your project
- Description of the research and/or creative activity. The description should include the goals and anticipated outcomes of the project, including brief methodology and relevant bibliography. It should be between 500 and 1000 words in length and be written for an audience of educated people not in your discipline. The description will be used to judge the merit of the project. It is strongly recommended that you draft and edit the project using a word processing platform and insert your final version into Quatrics.
Faculty mentor letter of support: All mentors are asked to provide a statement (approximately 150-300 words) describing their involvement in the research project/creative activity and the preparation of the student(s) to undertake the project. Please submit this brief statement using the following link:
