The Frost Research Center is pleased to offer grants up to $4,000 for projects of collaborative student-faculty research projects to be completed during the summer of 2014.

The Frost Center’s Advisory Committee will accept proposals submitted by Monday, April 14, 2014 with award notification made by Monday, April 21st. You may apply for funds for two consecutive years with a third year off between proposals. The requirements for submitting proposals have been revised recently to streamline the application process and make sure students are included in the research plan.

Please send your proposal to the Frost Center, pursuant to the following suggestions:

  • The proposal can be brief, but enough to give social scientists outside of your area an introductory understanding of the problem being addressed and how student researchers will be used.
  • When computing student wage, please indicate the number of students, the number of weeks, the number of hours per week, and the hourly rate (suggested rate is $8.00 per hour for college students).
  • Please indicate other sources of funding for this research project.
  • Faculty/student teams receiving funding must present their findings at a Frost Center research colloquium. Presentations at the National Council on Undergraduate Research, Hope’s January Research Celebration or an appropriate disciplinary conference are encouraged.
