Center for Student Research

Our application is linked below. Deadline is December 1, 2019. Only students with faculty mentors and research or creative projects can apply.
csr-logo-w-scholars-program

We are a student-focused program that encourages you to take more control of your academic and professional development experiences. 

 The CSR-SP’s primary purpose is to facilitate your engagement in faculty-mentored outside-of-the-classroom work on a research or creative activity project related to your academic discipline. Our secondary purpose is to help you develop academic and professional skills that will positively impact not only your scholarly activity work, but also, your academic and professional learning and performance. Intended outcomes of active student participation in the CSR Scholar’s Program are: increased student retention and success, and increased intention toward, and entry into, graduate programs for CSR Scholars. If selected to the CSR Scholar's Program, you may be supported via:

  • CSR Tuition Support: CSR Scholars (except for Associate Scholars) can earn tuition support for participating in CSR student-development programming and/or by engaging in specific student-researcher development activities with/overseen by their faculty mentors. Tuition support amount varies by Scholar category and activity.
  • CSR Travel Grants: CSR Scholars (except for New Pioneer Scholars) qualify to submit CSR Travel Grants to the CSR. Successful grant proposals cover the cost (up to a pre-designated dollar amount) for travel to professional conferences related to the student's CSR-associated research or creative activity project. 
  • CSR Supply Grants: CSR Scholars (except for New Pioneer Scholars) qualify to submit CSR Supply Grants to the CSR. Successful grant proposals cover the cost (up to a pre-designated dollar amount) for consumables needed to complete the student's CSR-associated research or creative activity. 

CSR-SP selection is competitive, but not GPA- nor discipline-bound. We encourage students at all academic levels (freshmen through graduate students) and levels of academic preparation to apply! Please note that the application window for the CSR Scholar's Program is open following the end of the current academic year and closes at the end of the first week of Fall semester.
