The College at Oneonta Foundation (CF) Awards for Excellence in Student Research and Creative Activity were established in 2011 to recognize and honor outstanding SUNY Oneonta students who conduct high-quality independent research and creative activity projects with faculty sponsorship. The CF will award prizes in the amount of $300 to five individual students who present work at the 2017 Student Research and Creative Activity (SRCA) Day on April 12. Faculty sponsors of prize winners will also each receive a $100 prize. All nominations from across the disciplines will be considered through a review process; 10-12 nominated students will be selected as finalists, and will present their projects to a panel of judges on SRCA Day.

Nominations must be submitted online by Wednesday, March 29. Please note (below) the eligibility requirements for the awards.

Student Eligibility

  • Students working solely on projects conducted as part of a class or coursework are NOT eligible; independent study or internship projects ARE eligible.
  • Only students recommended by a faculty sponsor via submission of the online form will be considered.
  • The individual student nominee’s contribution to the project(s) must be clearly articulated in the faculty nomination.
  • Student finalists must be present at SRCA Day (April 12) and be available to a review team to be eligible for consideration (specific times will be arranged in advance).

Each of the five student prize winners will be expected to deliver a brief oral presentation at the April 26 (noon) Faculty Convivium; and all prize winners will be honored at the Academic Achievement Awards reception on May 3 (3:00 pm).

Please consider nominating your student(s) for these awards if they meet the eligibility criteria and you feel that their work is exceptional.
