The Student Research Office (SRO) is soliciting applications for the Undergraduate Research Grant Program. All PNW undergraduate students in all fields of study are eligible for this grant. This grant will fund up to $300 for individual projects and $600 for group projects in order to cover research expenses (not student stipends) for a research project that a PNW student conducts with a PNW faculty mentor. Grant funds must be used before the students’ graduation date or by May 15, 2016, whichever is earlier. Students from all colleges at PNW are encouraged to apply.
Application Deadline: September 28, 2016 (by 11:59 PM)
There will be NO exceptions to the deadline.
Application Instructions: Please see the attached word document.
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 URG 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.
