Our Progress

Our Progress

  • The Student Research and Creativity Conference (SRCC), which has received over 3,500 abstracts with nearly 6,000 students presenting or performing at the annual event since its inception in 1999. 
     
  • The undergraduate summer research fellowship (USRF) program, which supports eight weeks of full-time research and creative activities. Each fellowship provides a student stipend of $2,750, a faculty stipend of $1,000, and up to $500 for travel, supplies, or equipment to support the project. Since the USRF program’s inception in 1999, more than $1,000,000 has been awarded to fund 258 recipients’ projects.
     
  • A small grants program that provides up to $400 to assist students in carrying out their research and creative activities during the academic year, and up to $600 for single projects involving two or more students. Since 2003, more than 375 students have been awarded funds from this program.
     
  • An undergraduate travel program that provides support for students to present or perform at professional meetings and conferences. Since 2003, nearly 300 students have been awarded funds from this program.
     
  • Integrating undergraduate research into the curriculum by providing support for faculty members to develop new courses that have a significant research component. Since 2004, 35 courses have been developed with funding from this program.
