Student Grant Program for Research & Creative Activity

Call for Applications: This program, funded by the College at Oneonta Foundation and the SUNY Oneonta Alumni Association, provides funding for independent research and creative activity projects conducted by students with faculty sponsorship.

Guidelines and application materials for the spring 2017 round of the Student Grant Program are available on the Research Committee website. The application deadline is Monday, March 20 at 5:00 pm.

A Drop-in/Q&A Session for students (and interested faculty) with Research Committee members will be held on Monday, February 27 and Tuesday, February 28, from 7:00–8:30 p.m. in Hunt Union, International Lounge. Refreshments will be available.

Student Grant program highlights:

  • Separate guidelines and application forms are used for Research projects and Creative Activity projects.
  • Student awardees are eligible to receive fellowships of up to $300 per project (not per student, if multiple), so students should be encouraged to apply even if they don’t need funding for materials, supplies or other expenses.
  • Faculty mentors will receive a $300 fellowship or travel/supply/book award for each project sponsored (two maximum per grant cycle); for projects with multiple mentors, the $300 award will be split.
