Undergraduate Research opportunities that are funded internally by Norwich University include support for students to present papers at professional meetings, support for expenses associated with original research, scholarship or creative work projects, and summer research fellowships.
The Undergraduate Research Committee is pleased to announce the continuation of our Summer Research Fellowship Program financially supported by the Chase Endowment for Academic Excellence and the Weintz Research Scholars Program.
The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program will fund faculty-mentored student research projects in both 10-week and 6-week formats. The Summer Fellowships are applied for through the completion of a research proposal prepared by the student, with guidance from his or her faculty mentor. Each recipient of a 10-week fellowship receives a stipend of $4,000. Those awarded 6-week fellowships receive a $2,400 stipend. Faculty mentors receive a stipend of either $1,000 or $1,500.
The fellowships, awarded on a competitive basis, support research, creative, or scholarly projects, but not work leading directly to completion of the student’s degree. Application deadline is February 24, 2014. Proposals should be submitted as saved (not scanned) PDFs and sent electronically to email@example.com. Expenses for projects involving international travel can potentially be supported with Politi Student Research Travel Grants. Additional information regarding Politi Funds is available on the my.norwich portal. Proposals involving human subjects require copies of draft or submitted IRB proposals.
Posters presenting the results of summer research projects are displayed each fall at the Faculty Scholarship Celebration and each spring at the Student Scholarship Celebration.
In collaboration with the Office of Academic Research, the Undergraduate Research Committee is proud to sponsor an annual Undergraduate Research Symposium. This interdisciplinary event takes place in the fall to celebrate and advance the culture of scholarly inquiry and creative thinking at Norwich University. The GOALS of the NU Undergraduate Research Symposium are to generate conversation about research methods across disciplines; provide a collaborative forum for students to begin to develop a research idea into a focused and informed research “plan”; and to introduce students to a range of opportunities to get funding for their research projects.
Feel free to contact a representative on the Undergraduate Research Committee if you have any questions about our program and events.
