Committee on Research

A major objective of the Committee on Research is to encourage faculty and student research and creative activity on campus and to enhance that aspect of the educational mission of the College. The Committee is charged with:

  1. Facilitating the Student Grant Program for Research and Creative Activity, including reviewing applications and making awards.
  2. Supporting Student Research and Creative Activity (SRCA) showcases.
  3. Reviewing policies and new initiatives and providing feedback to key stakeholders.

    Student Grant Program for Research & Creative Activity

    Call for Applications - Fall 2022

    Applications to the Traditional, Shadowing, and Course-based tracks will be accepted throughout the fall semester, and awards will be made on a rolling basis. Applications received after November 14 will be reviewed in spring 2023.

    Traditional Track: Funding is awarded each semester for students to conduct original research or creative work with faculty sponsorship, or to work on a faculty research team. Separate application materials are to be used for undergraduate student projects and graduate student projects (10 percent of allocated funding is available for graduate projects), and for individual projects and team programs. Budget requests are dependent on application type, as detailed in the guidelines.

    Shadow Track: Funding is intended to broaden student engagement in research/CA, whereby a student with little-to-no experience joins a faculty member’s research/CA endeavor as an “observer” or a junior team member. Budgets can include up to $500 for project expenses, plus stipends for both the faculty mentor and the ‘shadow’ student. 

    Course-based Track: Supports activities that expose students to the breadth, depth, and application of scholarly/creative work. Faculty can apply for funding of up to $1,000 for a variety of activities that would enhance the research/creative element of an AY 2022/23 course. Applications for fall 2022 course activities must be submitted by September 30 for consideration; applications for spring 2023 should be submitted this round by the November 14 target deadline.

    Summer Fellowship Track: Supports undergraduate students to participate in summer research/CA, including campus-based independent research/CA with faculty mentorship, research assistantships for campus-based faculty projects, or off-campus directed field work or other research/CA endeavor with a SUNY Oneonta faculty mentor. Applicants may apply for funding up to the maximum allowed for the specific type of summer research experience, as detailed in the program guidelines (student fellows are eligible for on-campus housing at no cost). Applications for Summer Fellowships will be accepted during the spring 2023 round.
