Support for student research

Funding is available only to students declared as majors in the department of Sociology & Anthropology.

Undergraduate Student Research

The department will fund up to $1000 for field research for an undergraduate student. No more than two projects will be funded in each semester. The student must be mentored by a sociology or anthropology faculty member. Applicants will submit a 2-page research description, a budget, and a letter of support from the faculty mentor to the department chair by November 1 or March 15. The application must identify a deliverable product at the end of the project, such as a thesis, a report for an external agency, or submitting a conference paper or poster proposal, which must be specified in the application. Applications will be reviewed by a faculty committee. Students applying for summer research are required to also apply for College of Arts and Sciences or Strohl undergraduate research grants.
