Student-Faculty Research Grant

The purpose of this grant is to promote collaborative research between faculty and undergraduate students in the Economics department.  The grant is intended to promote serious undergraduate research rather than provide funding for general undergraduate research assistance.  The department will only consider projects where the student plays a significant role in both development and execution.  The expectation is that work funded through a research grant will be undertaken during the summer of 2019 or during the 2019-20 academic year. The Call for Proposal [pdf] contains all the application components needed for submission.

  • March 12 and March 19:  Professor Parman will hold open office hours from 11am to 1pm, Tyler 254 to answer questions regarding the grant and to provide comments on drafts of proposals
