Grants Available for Summer Interdisciplinary Research

The Office of Student Research is continuing with an initiative to support interdisciplinary research teams during the summer of 2017 to serve as models for interdisciplinary undergraduate research and creative activities, as well as to foster a sense of community among Truman faculty, staff and students.
The Interdisciplinary Research Community Grant proposals should be written by two mentors, each from different departments, who will collaborate on a research project that involves and trains two undergraduate students, one from each of the mentor’s departments. Projects may be new or ongoing. Mentors choose student participants. Projects will be funded up to the maximum value of $9,500 per team and should equate to an eight-week equivalent period of time during the summer of 2017 (June 4 through July 28). Budget may include $1,500 max stipend per mentor, $3,000 max stipend per student and $9,500 max allocation for materials. Any material budget greater than $500 must be subtracted from the max stipend budget amounts at the discretion of the mentors.

Full details of the program, program requirements and the proposal guidelines are available on the OSR website. The deadline for applications, written by the two mentors, is Feb. 6.
