The Education Division is pleased to announce its Student-Faculty Collaborative Research in Education Award. Two (2) awards of $250 each will be made available each academic year (dual and double majors in teacher education programs and other related fields). Undergraduates at any stage of their undergraduate programs are encouraged to apply. 

This collaborative research may be conducted as an independent study, or as part of or an extension of course-embedded research projects, during Fall 2021 through August 2022. Ideally, the financial support would be used to pay for expenses associated with conducting the research or for conference/results dissemination. Special consideration will be given to proposals promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion.
