How OHIO students can apply for research and creative project funding through the Student Enhancement Awards

From staff reports | Nov 2, 2015

The Research Division is hosting two workshops in November to help Ohio University undergraduate, graduate and medical students learn how to submit proposals to the Student Enhancement Awards to access funding for their research, scholarship and creative activity.  

The workshops will be held from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 18, and from 4 to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 19 (repeat session) in 301U Alden Library. Light refreshments will be provided. For those who cannot attend a workshop, a video of the Nov. 19 session will be available at: https://www.ohio.edu/mediaserver/live.cfm?videoid=b41ab7a01c0a.

The Student Enhancement Awards support student research, scholarship and creative activities. The program offers up to $6,000 per proposal for research and travel to attend a professional meeting to present results.

“In addition to providing a funding mechanism for students to conduct their research and creative activity, we hope that the process of putting together the application encourages students to work with their faculty mentors to hone their ideas and their writing skills,” said Roxanne Malé-Brune, director of grant development and projects.

The deadline for proposals is 4 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 21, 2016.
