Academic year 2016-2017
The Student Research Office (SRO) is soliciting applications for the Indiana Space Grant Program. All PNW undergraduate students doing research in the STEM programs (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) are eligible for this grant. This grant is for team projects, and teams will be funded up to $600 to cover research expenses (not student stipends) for a research project that PNW students conduct with PNW faculty mentors. Grant funds must be used before the students’ graduation dates or by March 31, 2017, whichever is earlier. Please note that the INSGC awards will be given only in the fall semester. Also, the same proposal may be submitted for both programs (Undergraduate Research Grant & Indiana Space Grant Programs).
Application Deadline: September 28, 2016 (by 11:59 PM)
Application Instructions: Please download the attached word document.
- The PNW students must be doing research in the STEM programs (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)
- The students must be US citizens
- The project must be completed by May 15, 2017
- All intellectual property generated by this project will belong to the sponsor, in this case NASA. If you need clarification on this requirement, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- All other requirements are the same as for the Undergraduate Research Grant Proposal.
Students must submit their application to their faculty mentor for review. Mentors are asked to review but not write the application. After the mentor reviews and approves the application, he/she will submit the completed application to SRO@pnw.edu no later than 11:59 PM on September 28, 2016. All identifying information should appear on the cover sheet only and not in the proposal to accommodate the blind review process.
Only the student’s mentor—not the student— may submit the application to the Student Research Office. This will ensure that the mentor has approved the application.
Please note that by submitting an application the student is agreeing that, if they receive INSGC funding, they will present their research during the Spring 2017 Student Research Day. Also, if awarded, the abstract of their proposal will be posted on the Student Research Office web page.
