Undergraduate research grants

The Virginia Academy of Science (VAS) is soliciting applications for undergraduate student grants. The VAS Fall Undergraduate Research Meeting will be held on October 26th at the Parham Road Campus of J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College. At the conclusion of this meeting, five $500 research grants will be awarded to undergraduate students to support their research during the 2013-14 academic year. In order to be eligible for a research award, the student(s) must submit an application electronically to dcrosby@vsu.edu by October 4, 2013. The application for the Undergraduate Research Grant and additional meeting information is attached and is also available on the Virginia Academy of Science web site via the Meetings link (http://www.vacadsci.org/fall2013/fall2013.htm).

The faculty mentor for the project must be a member in good standing of the Virginia Academy of Science (i.e., paid 2013 dues) by the October 4th deadline for submission of the grant application. All applicants are required to attend the VAS Fall Undergraduate Research Meeting and present a poster outlining their proposed research. Both the research proposal and the poster presentation will be evaluated to determine the recipients of the research grants. The grant recipients will be awarded student membership in the Virginia Academy of Science for 2013 and will be expected to present the results of their research at the VAS Annual Meeting in May 2014.
