Undergraduate Research Grant Programs

Collaborative Inquiry Grants

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 28, 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.

 Please Note: The applications and guidelines have been updated as of 1/1/2014. Please review all materials carefully.
