Dear Honors College Students,
A significant advantage of being in the Honors College is access to funding to support your undergraduate research or other scholarly projects. Please meet with your faculty research advisor right away and start on your online applications for several grants-in-aid, due Monday, October 2, 2017. Guidelines for writing the research proposal can be found on the Honors College scholarships webpage. Click on the link below and go to the “Ongoing Opportunities” tab for more details:
The application must be finalized in collaboration with your research faculty advisor. Both the application and your advisor's letter of support are due by 5pm on Monday, October 2, 2017.
After you submit your portion of the application, your advisor will receive a link asking them to upload their letter (so be sure to give them enough time to upload their letter so that it is also submitted before the deadline).
(1) Research grants: All forms of scholarship are supported, including Capstone Projects. Maximum award is $1,000, for expenditures incurred since May 16, 2017 or anticipated for current or planned research projects. Reasonable research expenses may be covered (but not student stipends). Please submit your application here: https://uic.academicworks.com/opportunities/2280
(2) Conference 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. Please submit your application here: https://uic.academicworks.com/opportunities/2276
Whether you are conducting scientific experiments, lab research, or surveys, whether you are analyzing data from field work such as participant observation or in-depth interviews, creating a set for a play, designing a building, or exploring historical archives, you may apply for funding to support your research, pay for your Research Forum poster and attend professional conferences.
Please read the award announcements carefully, and follow instructions for submission of your research proposal, budget form, and letter of support from your faculty supervisor. Submit your completed online application--including support letter--by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, October 2, 2017. The online system will be terminated at that time and no late applications will be accepted.
