Call for Research Proposals

DEADLINE: September 26, 2014

The Research & Faculty Development Committee announces a Call for Research Proposals to support undergraduate research. 

The Henson School Undergraduate Student Research Fund is intended to support student undergraduate research conducted with a faculty supervisor. The grant money can be used for equipment, supplies and materials, sample analysis, and other appropriate research expenses. Grant awards can be made to an individual student more than once, but cannot cumulatively exceed $350 per student. The maximum award for projects will be as follows: 1 student = $350, 2 students = $600, 3 students = $750, 4 or more students = $800.

Students must have a declared major in the Henson School and be enrolled as a full-time student (minimum of 12 credit hours) during the project's duration. A full-time University faculty member must agree to serve as advisor to the project and ensure a final report is presented (e.g. at SUSRC or other venue).

Note:  Students may only submit on one proposal per semester.

Application forms and guidelines are only available on-line at

Applications must be submitted in PDF format (if you need help please ask your research advisor) on the appropriate form. Failure to follow instructions may void the application.  You will receive a confirmation email after you submit your proposal.  If you do not receive a confirmation email within 24 hours, you should assume that your proposal has not been submitted successfully.

Money awarded for research must be spent by Friday, November 7, 2014.

Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on September 26, 2014.
