Summer Collaborative Grant

The Summer Collaborative Grant is facilitated by the Undergraduate Research Program. CSB/SJU has committed to funding a total of 13 summer projects from a wide range of student-faculty collaborative teams.  These funds are available to ALL disciplines and are distinct from traditional departmental lines held by each department. The goal of the program is to provide student collaborators with a meaningful research or creative work experience and high-quality mentorship. It is the intent that these projects fit into a student’s 10 week summer availability and that mentorship takes place within a scholarly context throughout the entire execution of the project and be a formative process.

In addition to our Summer Collaborative Grant, we are excited to fund a new grant for Summer 2021: the Interdisciplinary Faculty Collaborative Grant! This grant will fund two faculty and two students to collaborate on an interdisciplinary research project;  We are excited about this opportunity as we believe it supports the mission of Undergraduate Research and CSB/SJU as liberal arts and sciences institutions. As always, faculty from all disciplines are eligible and encouraged to apply.

Both grants provide $6000 funding for a stipend for a full-time student collaborator (40 hours per week for 10 weeks). After projects are approved, students may also apply for support through the UR Grant Program.  Faculty mentors are eligible to apply for the faculty stipend of $1,500.

Students are encouraged to approach faculty that they are interested in collaborating with on a project. 

Proposals for summer 2022 will open in December. The application deadline is Janurary 21, 2022
