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. (Ten percent of funding is allocated to graduate projects.) 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.
