The Davis Family Undergraduate Summer Scholars Research Fund in the M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing is designed to provide financial support for student research. Stipends are for student researchers who have a Nursing faculty mentor; there is also funding available for supplies, travel, and poster printing.
- Students must be enrolled as full-time undergraduates during the period of their funded activities.
- Research projects associated with academic course credit are not eligible for funding; projects may be occasioned by previous coursework, but all projects must be documented as substantive developments beyond the original work.
- Collaboration between faculty and student researchers is encouraged, but student authorship within the project must be the core element; projects for which students are serving primarily as research assistants for faculty projects will not be funded.
- All project proposals must include their intended results and the venue within which the completed scholarship will be disseminated.
