Here is an on-campus summer research program designed for Undergraduates who are interested in conducting research related to mental illness and related disorders. The 10-week program will provide students with the opportunity to work with a faculty member on a research project in an area of the student's interest as well as to obtain practical skills and training on research ethics. The NIMH funding will allow us to provide a $4000 stipend to participating students. We would appreciate it if you would notify students in the Honors College of our program so they may apply if they are interested. Applications are due by March 16, 2012.
The applications are now available for Honors College Competitive Scholarships for 2012-2013.  Scholarships range from $500 to $2000 a semester, and some do not consider financial need.  Application deadline is April 15th.
