Collaborative Inquiry Grants offer students financial support to work closely with a faculty member outside of the classroom on collaborative projects during Spring Semester or Fall Semester. Collaborative Inquiry projects provide an intensive educational experience for the student that complements, enhances, or even surpasses the traditional classroom.
Student grantees are considered the primary collaborator-learners, with the faculty member as a collaborator-advisor. The main goal of collaborative inquiry is to increase students' research and higher-order thinking skills.
Applications are due on April 11, 2014, for projects that will be carried out during Fall Semester 2014.
Student grantees receive a stipend of $1,000 for the semester. Faculty collaborators receive $500.
*New this year, faculty who have never mentored an undergraduate student working on a Collaborative Inquiry grant will be paid an incentive bonus of $500 for the first student that they mentor (or a total of $1,000 for that student).
