Grant Application Guidelines
The Student Research Grant Program was established to encourage Mount Aloysius College students and faculty mentors to engage in research and conference attendance by defraying some of the cost associated with such endeavors. Research, in this context, is broadly defined and will include projects from all disciplines. Students, under direction of department faculty, should develop research projects that contribute new or supportive knowledge with content in their discipline.
- Students must be enrolled in a program at Mount Aloysius College.
- Faculty mentors must be full or part time faculty of Mount Aloysius College.
- Individual original research – up to $200
- Conference Attendance (not presenting research) – up to $100
- Conference Attendance (presenting research) – up to $200
- Proof of presentation is required. (An example would be a copy of the conference proceedings with the student’s name).
- Additional monies may be available after May 30. See Supplemental Grant Application below.
Awarded monies will be distributed on a reimbursement basis. Upon approval of the project by the Student Research Committee (SRC), the student or faculty member pays for the items in advance, and then submits receipts to the Committee chair for reimbursement. The exception to this is items that cannot be purchased directly but require departmental purchase, in which case the faculty member should follow typical purchase procedure, then contact the SRC committee chair for the committee’s budget account number.
Use of funds
Funds may be used for supplies, equipment, and software. Such items purchased with these funds will remain property of Mount Aloysius College. Conference awards can include fees, hotel, and travel ($0.40/mile). Funds may not be used for stipends or reimbursement for services.
- Present at the next Research Symposium
Faculty Mentor(s) must:
- Supervise all aspects of the project.
- Guarantee compliance with established human participant and biosafety requirements.
- Certify that students are adequately trained to complete the project as described.
