Apply for funding to support summer fellowships and course integration

Student Grant Program for Research & Creative Activity


The Committee on Research announces a new application round for faculty to apply for funding to support engagement of students in research and creative activity (CA) – for summer experiences and course integration.

The “Summer Fellowship” Track supports undergraduate student participation in summer research/CA programs including: campus-based independent research/CA with faculty mentorship; assistantships for campus-based faculty projects; and permitted, approved off-campus research/CA activities mentored by a SUNY Oneonta faculty member. A minimum of 40 hours of mentored effort is required to be eligible for a Summer Fellowship. Funding may be requested for: student compensation (see guidelines), materials/supplies (up to $500), and a $300 faculty award. Student awardees may be eligible for on-campus housing (at no cost to the student), should the project time frame align with housing availability. Applications, to be submitted by the faculty mentor, will be reviewed on a rolling basis; however, submission by June 30 is encouraged. Link here to apply.

The “Course-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 (both classroom-based and/or remotely taught). Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis until August 15, 2020. Link here to apply.

More information, guidelines and application instructions for these two student grant opportunities are also available on the Committee on Research webpage.

The Student Grant Program for Research & Creative Activity is funded by the College at Oneonta Foundation, and the SUNY Oneonta Alumni Association from charitable contributions to the Fund for Oneonta.
