CRS Award Funds

“Research” refers to inquiry that harnesses knowledge, skills, and values to produce new knowledge or to make a new contribution to the discipline and it is recognized that this concept varies across the humanities, the creative arts, and the sciences disciplines. CRS provides funds to students and faculty to support undergraduate research and scholarship through the following awards.  Here are the recent CRS funded research awards.

Faculty Professional Development Awards

Supports professional development opportunities for faculty involved in teaching and/or mentoring undergraduate residential students in research and scholarship. These funds support hosting external speakers for on-campus workshops, purchase of online or print resources, enrollment in a university course, or travel to conferences, all related to developing an effective and well-informed undergraduate research program (see Section IX of the QEP). 
Criteria and Application

Research Intensive (R-I) Course Awards
