Links to other student research:
Faculty Student Research Program (FSRP): The principal purpose of the FSRP is to offer students the opportunity to be involved in faculty research activities. The FSRP offers students powerful learning experiences which transcend the traditional roles of faculty/student relationships. Students receive transcript recognition for their participation.FSRP - Learning Contract

President’s Fellowship for Summer Research (PFSR): ORSP offers ten undergraduate student summer research grants. One award will be specifically reserved for a project stemming from the Humanities, and one from the Social Sciences. Stipends of $3,000 are offered to provide students with the opportunity to engage in a research project with a full-time faculty mentor during a ten-week period. In addition to the $3,000 student award, $500 is allocated for materials and/or student travel.
Questions: Contact Therese Kurilla at email@example.com
rHIP proposal submitted should be a collaborative effort between the student and the faculty member, with the student providing a project description, and the faculty member providing specific information about potential learning outcomes. Although research project funding needs vary greatly between disciplines, we expect that the average award will be approximately $500. Requests that exceed that amount will require justification.
Student Travel Funding: ORSP provides funding to assist our student researchers in covering costs related to travel to conference and professional meetings where they are presenting their research. Students may be eligible for up to $300 in reimbursement of expenses.
See student travel page for more details.

Celebration of Student Scholars (COSS): This all-day event, celebrates both undergraduate and graduate student scholarship by featuring their work through physical displays of their research and creative efforts.
Applications are due in March. Please contact Dr. Tabbi Miller-Scandle at email@example.com for further information.
