Arts and Sciences awards two kinds of scholarships on a competitive basis each academic year; each requires a letter of support from an academic advisor, and preference is given to students planning to write a thesis.
Undergraduate Research Scholarships range from $500 to $12,000.
No formal advisor is required for the senior essay.
If you choose to revise and expand an earlier paper, you may want to reconnect with the instructor for whom you wrote the original.
But it should also be a topic of manageable scale, one that can adequately be explored in the time available to you.
Your faculty advisor can help you to shape your project at the outset, and to make any necessary adjustments along the way.
Applications for a given academic year are due in early February of the preceding year.
International Research Grants provide up to ,000 for research-related travel abroad for students in Arts and Sciences.
If you choose to write the senior essay, you should have selected a paper to revise and expand, or else identified a topic for a new research paper, no later than the semester you enroll in 4990.
You will need to submit your draft or proposal for a first round of peer review early in Spring semester.
