Student Research Grants

The purpose of the Student Research Grants Program is to assist students with expenses directly related to the conduct of research. Funding for the Program comes from three sources: the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, the Reves Center, and the Lemon Project. The funds are collectively called Student Research Grants. (Applications will be accepted before May 1 and after September 1 every academic year.)

Vice Provost Funding: Any continuing undergraduate or graduate student may apply for up to $500 from the Vice Provost fund.  Applications from students conducting Honors research are especially encouraged.

Reves Center Funding: The Reves Center awards of up to $750 are reserved for students who are conducting research abroad. Both undergraduate and graduate students from all schools encouraged to apply. 

Lemon Project Funding: The funds from the Lemon Project support undergraduate research comporting with the interest and goals of the Lemon Project. The Lemon Project is a multifaceted and dynamic attempt to rectify wrongs perpetrated against African Americans by the College through action or inaction. Candidates may apply for up to $500 (for domestic expenses; $750 for international travel). A copy of the final research product must  be given to the Committee for its use, including archival or other public access. Note that support may go towards necessary research costs and/or for the presentation of results at public conferences.

Please see the Student Research Grant Guidelines for compete details and to apply.

NOTE: Students that receive Charles Center Summer Scholarship funding are not eligible to receive Student Research Grants for the same project/same summer term.
