Bernadette Haig, Class of 2018, at OSA Biophotonics Congress
In an effort to support students who have had their research accepted for presentation at a professional conference, FCRH accepts requests for funding to help defray costs associated with attendance. In 2019-2020, we funded 28 grants for travel around the country and internationally as well. Students may apply for up to $800 per academic year to reimburse their travel expenses. Please do not hesitate to email Dean Annunziato regarding funding for participation in virtual events.
Deadline: Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. All requests for travel support funding should be made in advance of the conference.
FCRH provides funding for students to conduct mentored research throughout the academic year. The deadline for fall 2021 grants is Friday, October 1. Grants will be considered on a rolling basis up until that deadline. We ask that you send Dean Annunziato an email with your intention to apply for a fall grant as soon as possible.
We offer support for students to become intimately engaged in the research process as they work on their own project or that of a faculty mentor. A goal of this funding is to provide students with the dedicated time to receive training in the research methods of their discipline (all are welcome!) as they work to collect and analyze data, develop an original composition, or participate in other appropriate scholarly and creative activities. With the guidance of their mentor, students are expected to learn about how their work fits in with the larger academic community as they prepare their projects for public dissemination and presentation. With the support of these mechanisms, FCRH students have presented their findings at prestigious venues around the country.
Deadlines: Applications are due by midnight. Faculty recommendations can be submitted at any time; they are due to this link by the day after the deadline. Please note that applications missing a recommendation will not be considered further.
