Student Grant Program for Research & Creative Activity – call for applications

Student Grant Program for Research & Creative Activity


The “Traditional” Track of the Student Grant Program for Research & Creative Activity (CA) provides funding of up to $1,500 for project expenses (plus student and faculty stipends) for independent research/CA projects conducted by students with faculty sponsorship.

The “Shadowing” Track is intended to broaden student engagement in research/CA, whereby a student with little-to-no experience (freshman/sophomore/first year transfer) joins a faculty member’s research/CA endeavor as an “observer” or a junior team member. Budgets can include up to $500 for project expenses, plus stipends for both the faculty mentor and the ‘shadow’ student.

The “Classroom-based” Track supports activities that expose students to the breadth, depth, and application of scholarly/creative work. Faculty can apply for funding of up to $1,000 for a variety of activities that would enhance the research/CA element of a course.

The “Summer Fellowship” Track assists undergraduate students with costs related to participating in summer research/CA, including: campus-based independent research/CA with faculty mentorship, or assistantships for campus-based faculty projects; off-campus directed field work or other research/CA endeavor with a SUNY Oneonta faculty mentor; formal research/CA experiences at other institutions; participation in external field schools, artist residencies, etc. Applicants may apply for funding up to the maximum allowed for the specific type of summer research experience, as detailed in the program guidelines (funding ranges from $1,000 to $2,000 + faculty stipend).

Guidelines and application instructions for the spring 2019 round of the Student Grant Program are available on theCommittee on Research website. Please read guidelines, including eligibility and the application process, carefully. The application deadline for all four tracks is Monday, March 25 at 11:59 pm.

This program is funded by the College at Oneonta Foundation and the SUNY Oneonta Alumni Association, and an award from the Strategic Allocation of Resources (StAR) program.

Contact a member of the Committee on Research if you have questions.

Donation time for Hunt Union Food Shelf

The next date for food collection across campus will be February 18. To make it easier for employees to support & donate non-perishable food items, we have established various drop-off points. Below you will find a variety of campus locations and helpful contacts to collect your food donations. Donations are then moved to the Hunt Union to be stored and regularly distributed to the shelf. The program is supported by the Office of Student Life and Leadership/Hunt College Union, Center for Social Responsibility and Community,  Student Association, Office of Equity and Inclusion, and the Office of Sustainability. The Food Shelf is located on your left as you enter the lower level entrance to Hunt Union (near the pond).
