STUDENT GRANT PROGRAM FOR RESEARCH & CREATIVE ACTIVITY
THE SPRING 2020 APPLICATION DEADLINE IS MARCH 9 (Monday)
The "Traditional" Track awards funding of up to $1,500 (+ fellowships for student and faculty mentor) for independent research and creative activity projects conducted by students with faculty sponsorship.
The Research/CA "Shadowing" Track is intended to broaden student engagement in research/CA, whereby a student with little-to-no experience (freshman, sophomore, first-year transfer) 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 (+ faculty mentor and ‘shadow’ student stipends).
The "Classroom-based" Research/CA Track is intended to support activities that expose students to the breadth, depth, and application of scholarly/creative activity. Faculty can apply for funding of up to $1,000 for activities that would enhance the research/CA element of a course.
The "Summer Fellowship" Track assists undergraduate students with costs related to participating in summer research/CA, including: campus-based independent research/CA with faculty mentorship, or assistantships for campus-based faculty projects; off-campus directed field work or other research/CA endeavor with a SUNY Oneonta faculty mentor; formal research/CA experiences at other institutions; participation in external field schools, artist residencies, etc. Applicants may apply for funding up to the maximum allowed for the specific type of summer research experience, as detailed in the program guidelines.
