CAS Student Research Fund
The College of Arts and Sciences has established an undergraduate student research fund to support student research or creative projects and travel to professional meetings. This fund is supported by the Ruth Blanchard endowed fund, Faculty/Staff Appeal, and Dean’s office funds. The purpose of the fund is to support and encourage student research, creative, and professional activity under the guidance of sponsoring faculty members. Undergraduate majors in the College of Arts and Sciences are invited to apply to the Associate Dean for funding for the following purposes:
Amount of Award
The maximum award is $500.00 per request; that is, one individual may request up to $500, and one group may request up to $500 for a group project.
Eligibility and Restrictions
All College of Arts and Sciences undergraduate majors with a minimum GPA of 2.0 may apply. Funding is not available for majors from colleges other than CAS.
Students must be registered for classes when they apply and not yet graduated when they receive the award.
Students whose faculty advisor for a particular project is currently serving on the awards committee may not apply.
