Russ Vision Funds


The Russ College goes beyond technical education to produce meta-engineers and -technologists who are poised for leadership and aware of their influence on the world around them. Unique to the Russ College, Russ Vision Funds are available to support students as they pursue activities beyond the classroom that will develop their meta-engineering and -technology skills. Both students as well as faculty/staff may apply to request funds for student activities.

These activities might be:

  • Undergraduate research with a faculty member
  • A student organization’s attendance at a national conference, to network with other chapters and employers and professionals, or present a research paper
  • Support for a competition team  to learn from putting their technical skills into practice, succeeding and sometimes failing
  • Leadership activities such as professional development

To apply for funds, complete a proposal and send the appropriate form below to Associate Dean for Academics Deb McAvoy at 740.593.1468.
