Dear Honors College students,
A significant advantage of being in the Honors College is access to funding to support your undergraduate research or scholarly project. Please meet with your faculty research advisor right away and start on your applications for several grants-in-aid, due Friday, September 21st, 2018. Guidelines for writing the research proposal can be found on the Honors College scholarships webpage.
Please visit http://honors.uic.edu/resources/scholarships/, then click on 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 noon on Friday, September 21, 2018.
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 completed applications to Julianne Angeli at email@example.com with the subject line “YourLastName Research Grant Application.”
(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 completed applications to Julianne Angeli at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “YourLastName Travel Grant Application.”
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 application--including support letter--by noon (CST) on Friday, September 21, 2018. No late applications will be accepted.
Please direct your questions to Julianne Angeli at email@example.com.
