Summer Collaborative Grant
The Summer Collaborative Grant Program 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.
The $6000 grant provides funding for a stipend for a full-time student collaborator, plus room and board allowance. 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.
