CALL FOR PROPOSALS, UNDERGRADUATE SUMMER RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP

Submission Deadline: Thursday, March 1, 2012

The Honors College at ETSU is pleased to again offer Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowships for undergraduate students pursuing major research projects as part of their undergraduate education here at ETSU.  The Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship Program is designed to assist outstanding undergraduate students in making major progress on a formal, organized research project over the summer in collaboration with a faculty mentor.  Funds are provided for a scholarship to the student, as well as supplies and/or travel necessary for the project, up to a maximum of $2,500.  Summer enrollment of at least 1 credit hour is required.  Students may elect for their proposal to be considered secondarily under the Student-Faculty Collaborative Grant Program, if not eligible or not selected for a Fellowship.  For details on valid expenses, submission instructions, and necessary forms, please click on link above.    

Proposals submitted for either the Student-Faculty Collaborative Grant or the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows programs will be evaluated by members of The Honors College and selected specialists across campus.  The quality of the project, of the student applicant, and demonstrated ability of the faculty mentor to conduct significant research in the proposed area will be considered in these reviews.  For further information, please contact Dr. Frosty Levy, Director of Undergraduate Research, The Honors College (email levyf@etsu.edu or phone 439-6926).
