Research mentorships and scholarships, like Undergraduate Research Participation, allow students to assist faculty in research. However, scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis, and students are awarded a stipend rather than academic credit.
Research Mentorships and Scholarships can provide excellent assistance to any faculty member's research project. Although students are encouraged to locate a faculty member who is interested in becoming a mentor, we also invite faculty members to recommend students to the program.
The Honors Program uses these scholarships to encourage mutually beneficial faculty/student collaboration in experiential projects. We interpret research broadly to include formal research and creative endeavors in all disciplines, including the basic and applied sciences, humanities, fine arts, social sciences, business, and education.
Mentorship Scholarships are awards of $600 per semester to support and encourage student work with individual faculty members. The student should collaborate on a research/scholarship project that is related to the student's academic and/or career plans.
Students with mentorship scholarships collaborate personally with faculty who direct the project and advise them. The main purpose of these awards is to familiarize students with research and project development.

These scholarships are awards of $2500 for the Summer term to support and encourage undergraduate work with individual faculty members on research or scholarship in a mentoring relationship. The scholarship is available for the student to conduct research or scholarship related to a student's academic and/or career plans.

Students with research scholarships work closely with individual faculty members, who direct and advise them on the project.

Students awarded a Summer Research Scholarship must be registered for at least 1 credit hour during the summer term in order to be eligible to receive the scholarship.
