Call for Applications: Provost’s Student/Faculty Collaborative Research Grant

| April 17, 2014

The Office of the Provost and Office of Academic Affairs are pleased to announce the Summer/Fall 2014 call for applications for the Provost’s Student/Faculty Collaborative Research Grant Program.

Undergraduate students conducting research projects with the guidance of a faculty member can apply for funds to assist with research expenses, such as material and supplies, presentation-related items, and other eligible expenses. At Webster, research is defined broadly and includes artistic, scholarly, and other research activities fitting our variety of disciplines and majors. Current undergraduate students from all schools, campuses, and majors are encouraged to apply.

Webster senior Jeanette Guellil, a Human Rights major, is one of the recipients of the Spring 2014 grant. She says that the grant allowed her to supplement her research and add sources that she wouldn’t have been able to afford otherwise. Her research project is titled “Advocacy and Consumerism: A TOMS Case Study.” She hopes to be able to publish her research when it is complete.

“This program represents a significant step for Webster University,” said assistant professor in Psychology Eric Goedereis, who is one of the faculty sponsors. “I appreciate that the definition of ‘research’ is broad enough so that students and faculty from a variety of disciplines may take advantage of this opportunity by collaboratively exploring a topic of interest in a formalized way that is both professional and meaningful to the larger field.”

Applications

Applications are now being accepted for Summer and Fall 2014 research projects. Applications are due May 9 and the winners will be notified the week of May 19, 2014.
