Undergraduate Research Scholarships
Warren College Undergraduate Research Scholarships encourage outstanding Warren students to engage in scholarly research and creative or artistic experimentation. These scholarships provide support of up to $2,000 to subsidize travel, supplies, equipment, and other costs associated with these endeavors.
Warren students from all majors are eligible to apply. U.S. citizenship is not a requirement.
Applications are evaluated by a panel of Warren College faculty from a variety of disciplines. The applicant must secure a faculty sponsor who must approve the overall project and itemized budgetary request. All recipients will be required to submit an analytical paper (in addition to any physical project that might result) at the completion of the project.
- The project proposal must be independent research for work above and beyond the normal course of study, unless the project overlaps with research associated with a senior honors project or independent/special studies
- The subject matter of the research project does not have to be related to the student’s major, minor, or other coursework
Before applying, applicants must secure a faculty sponsor who must approve the project and budget and will advise during the research process.
The application deadline for 2016-2017 has passed. Application for 2017-2018 will be available in Spring 2017.
