Conduct Research, Mentor a Student
Are you a faculty member interested in bringing on a student to help with your research? Proposals for the Provost’s Student-Faculty 2020–2021 Undergraduate Research program are being accepted through July 30.
Call for Proposals: Provost’s Student-Faculty 2020–2021 Undergraduate Research Program
Revised Application Deadline July 30, 2020
The Provost's Undergraduate Student-Faculty Research Program is designed for undergraduate students who have completed their freshman, sophomore, or junior year, is for projects that have evolved from mentored course work and research settings and would benefit from further, in-depth development.
The goal of this program is to support faculty-mentored undergraduate research across disciplines or artistic projects.
Projects commence September 1, 2020 and conclude May 1, 2021. For the academic year 2020, students, in consultation with their faculty mentors, are encouraged to develop research and artistic projects that are “hybrid” in approach, designed to support both on-site campus work, and remote and online learning. Student awardees will receive a stipend of $1,500 to be paid in four installments of $375. Faculty mentors will receive a $500 stipend or supply purchase paid in two installments of $250.
Project proposals are for the academic-year—both the Fall and Spring semesters. Applications for the Fall 2020 semester only will be accepted for seniors graduating in December; such students will receive a stipend of $750 paid in two installments of $375.
All student awardees are expected:
>> to work part-time on their projects;
>> to participate in regular check-ins with their faculty mentor no less than twice a month;
>> to submit a mid-year progress report and mid-year descriptive reflection about the research/artistic experience by mid-December;
>> to submit a final report and final descriptive reflection by mid-May;
>> to submit a research paper, or artistic project, and;
>> to make a public presentation of their projects at a Pace University undergraduate research event during the 2020–2021 academic year.
