The Spring 2016 application deadline is Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Please note:

Separate guidelines and application forms (below) are used for Research projects and Creative Activity projects.

Student Fellowships ($300 per project, not per student if multiple) are not requested in the application as part of the project budget. All awardees will be considered for a fellowship, which will be recommended by the faculty mentor(s) after work on the project has commenced and the project has been presented at a Student Research and Creative Activity (SRCA) Day event. 

Faculty mentors will receive a $300 fellowship or travel / book award for each project sponsored (two maximum per guidelines); for projects with multiple mentors, the $300 award will be split. Fellowships/travel awards will be requested at the time student fellowship recommendations are made.

A complete Student Grant proposal includes [a] the correct STUDENT APPLICATION FORM submitted by
the student applicant(s)
, AND [b] the correct FACULTY SPONSOR FORM, submitted separately by the faculty sponsor. Forms are available via the links below for the two programs (Research, Creative Activity).

This grant program is funded by the State University College at Oneonta Foundation, Inc. through charitable gifts and grants to the College, and the SUNY Oneonta Alumni Association.

Students with faculty sponsorship in any discipline or interdisciplinary area are encouraged to apply; the program’s priority is to fund undergraduate applicants, however graduate students may also apply. Although projects must represent independent student research or creative activity, they should represent truly collaborative student-faculty efforts. Students are responsible for writing the proposal, carrying out the project, and presenting the project at a Student Research and Creative Activity (SRCA) Day event. Faculty sponsors are expected to be continuously involved through planning the project, assisting with its progress, and assuring its completion within the specified time frame. Students are encouraged to work closely with their faculty sponsor. Curricular, instructional or educational program development is not considered as meeting the primary purpose of this program. Projects that are required as part of a regular course’s curriculum are not eligible (independent study work is eligible).

The Student Grant Program is competitive; awards are made once per semester.

Have questions or need guidance?
A Student Grant 'Drop-in' Information Session will be held on Tuesday, February 23, from 7–8:30 p.m. in the International Lounge of the Hunt Union, or contact a member of the Committee on Research
