A significant advantage of being in the Honors College is access to money to support your undergraduate research. Please see your faculty research advisor right away and start now to write your applications for several grants-in-aid, which are all due Monday, February 24, 2014. All applications must be supported by a letter from the research faculty advisor.
(1) Research grants: Many forms of scholarship are supported for up to $1,000, including senior Capstone theses, for expenditures incurred since August 19, 2013, or those anticipated for projects planned for Spring and Summer 2014 semesters. The money will fund costs associated with student research or other creative or scholarly activity (rather than, for example, student stipends).
(2) Travel grants: Proposals will be considered for expenses associated with presentation of research at conferences (e.g., flight, hotel, poster preparation costs) up to $500.
Details and application forms are available at: http://www.uic.edu/honors/learning/documents/2014SpringResearchGrantApp.pdf (Research) and http://www.uic.edu/honors/learning/documents/2014SpringTravelGrantApp.pdf (Travel). Please read the award announcements carefully, and follow instructions for submission of rationale and methods, detailed budget and budget justification, letter of support, etc. Submit your completed application to the front desk of the Honors College by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, February 24, 2014. No late applications will be accepted.
