Academic Year Grants
During the fall and spring semesters, students may apply for up to $500 per semester to support research, scholarship, or other creative projects. Students must work closely with a faculty advisor and are not limited to any particular discipline. Funds can be used to pay for supplies, printing costs, subject incentives, software, books, or other costs associated with the completion of the project. A portion of this award may also be used for travel expenses related to the collection of data for the student project. Only current students in good academic standing are eligible for FURSCA grants.
The application process for any FURSCA research grant is completed through an online application.
The full guidelines for writing FURSCA proposals are found in this pdf file.
In order for an application to be considered complete, all three parts of the application must be filled out and submitted on time. Late proposals will not be considered. The three parts of the application process are:
- Online application form
- Signature Sheet (Please print this file, fill it out, and turn it in on paper)
- Faculty support letter via online form
Please consult the guidelines for the current requirements.
NOTE: All research that involves the use of human research participants (e.g., interviews, experiments, questionnaires) MUST receive prior approval from the college's Institutional Review Board (IRB). The appropriate forms can be found on their website.
You must apply for funding before you have incurred the expenses for which you are requesting reimbursement.
