*Important Changes to the Student Grant Program for 2013-2014*

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

Student Fellowships will not be requested in the application as part of the project budget. All grant awardees will be considered
for a fellowship, which will be recommended by the faculty mentor(s) after work on the project has commenced. 

Faculty mentors will receive a $300 fellowship or travel 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.

This grant program is funded by the State University College at Oneonta Foundation, Inc. through investment income from unrestricted endowment, made possible 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 (although the program’s priority is to fund undergraduate applicants, graduate students may apply). The proposed projects should represent truly collaborative student-faculty efforts. Students are responsible for writing the proposal, carrying out the project, and presenting the project at Student Research Day.

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). Projects must represent independent student research or creative activity.

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