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.

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. Caitlin Cunningham (Chair), Mathematics, Statistics & Computer Science
Dr. Devon Keeney, Biological Sciences
Dr. Douja Mamelouk, Foreign Languages
Ms. Lindsey Sikes, Theatre Arts
Fr. Michael Guzik, Religious Studies
Dr. Emily Harcourt, Chemistry
