Student Research

Welcome to Student Research at Le Moyne. An important part of college education is learning how to do research according to the standards and methods of your chosen field of study and academic discipline. Employers and graduate and professional schools increasingly are looking for college graduates with strong research, writing, analytical, and communication skills. Nothing helps you hone those skills more than working on a faculty-mentored, independent project. This website tells you everything you need to know to pursue independent research, entrepreneurial, and creative projects with Le Moyne faculty mentors.

This page tells you how to submit a proposal and obtain funding to support different kinds of undergraduate research, entrepreneurial, and creative projects. Students from all academic disciplines represented at the College are invited to apply for funding. Detailed instructions for completing proposals, as well as sample proposals for various disciplines, can be found below. Feel free to contact any member of the Student Research Committee (also below) if you have questions about the process.

Proposals are reviewed several times throughout the academic year. Proposal deadlines for 2017-2018 are:

  • September 22, 2017
  • October 13, 2017
  • November 10, 2017
  • February 2, 2018
  • February 23, 2018
  • April 27, 2018 (for Summer funding)

Proposals are due by 5 p.m.

The Student Research Committee solicits and evaluates proposals to support research by undergraduate students (in conjunction with a faculty member). The committee makes recommendations for funding to the Provost/Academic Vice President who then communicates the approval of awards to the Chair. The funding is managed through the office of the Chief Academic Officer. This committee is staffed each year by a faculty Chair, one faculty representative each from natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, management division, and one at-large faculty member. It also includes one student member nominated by the Student Senate President. In order to retain continuity, this seven member committee replaces no more than four members (including the student) in a given year. 

The current committee members are:

Dr. Devon Keeney (Chair), Biological Sciences
Dr. Caitlin Cunningham, Mathematics
Dr. Douja Mamelouk, Foreign Languages
Ms. Lindsey Sikes, Theatre Arts
Fr. Donald Maldari, Religious Studies
Dr. Emily Harcourt, Chemistry
Shania Hayward, Student Representative

Doing research means becoming part of a larger community. Whether that community consists of biologists, historians, literary scholars, chemists, sociologists, psychologists, entrepreneurs, artists, business and community leaders, or others, it is important to learn about and become active in your field.

The annual Le Moyne College Student Scholars Day is a tradition that originated with the Undergraduate Research Symposium in 1998. Scholars Day celebrates the research, entrepreneurial, and creative accomplishments of students from a variety of academic disciplines. Each year in the third week of April, students discuss their work at this day-long conference devoted to faculty-mentored, independent projects. Integral Honors students will also present their thesis research, which is the capstone of their Integral Honors experience. Click on the links below to learn more about current and prior Scholars Day programs. Click the following to submit a proposal to present your work at Scholars Day April 20th, 2018. Scholars Day 2018 proposals are due by Thursday, March 1st. We look forward to hearing from you.

An invaluable part of the research process involves sharing and receiving feedback on your work. Presenting your work at conferences and submitting it to peer-reviewed journals for possible publication help you learn from the larger community of people in your field. Below is the contact information for a number of conferences and academic and professional journals to get you started.
