Holt School Dean David Richard has announced a new student-faculty summer collaboration grant program for Holt students to facilitate student development. The purpose of the grant is to encourage student-faculty collaboration in a common area of interest, the primary purpose of which is to assist the student in his or her intellectual and/or creative development. The collaboration may take any of a number of forms (e.g., empirical work, theoretical work, artistic creations, etc.) and can cross disciplinary boundaries. Priority will be given to projects that will be presented to peers at a conference or other comparable professional gathering. Projects that may reasonably result in publication, or other such peer-reviewed evaluation, will be given the highest priority for funding. The project must be initiated by the student. Although the project may fit within a faculty member's existing research program, a high level of responsibility for conducting the project must be given to the student and it must be clear how the student is likely to benefit from the collaboration (e.g., enhancing the student's prospects for future studies within a field).
AMOUNT OF GRANT
Student: $2,250 stipend for the summer. The student is expected to spend a minimum of 20 hours per week working on his or her project.
Faculty member: $1,500 stipend for the summer. The faculty member is expected to meet frequently with the student to provide mentoring and collaboration. Priority for faculty funding will be given to tenure track faculty members who have experience working with Hamilton Holt School students. Adjunct faculty are eligible for awards.
Travel and conference funds: Up to $2,000 will be designated for travel and conference funds to defray expenses for the student and faculty member to attend a conference or professional gathering where the work will be presented. All proposed projects must include a reasonable plan for conference presentation or professional review.
Research support funds: $250 will be provided to each student for support of collaborative activities (supplies, equipment, software, etc.). Additional funding for support funds may be available through supplemental sources.
Students: All Hamilton Holt School students in good standing. A student must be enrolled in courses for a minimum of 8 credit hours at the time of the grant application.
Faculty: Tenure track and adjunct faculty with priority given to tenure track faculty who have experience working with Hamilton Holt School students. Please note that a student must be a student in the Hamilton Holt School at the time of travel to a conference in order to receive reimbursement for any travel-related and conference costs.
Only students can apply for the grant and applications should be written in consultation with the partnering faculty member. The application deadline is 12 p.m., Friday, February 1, 2013, and should be submitted to the dean of the Hamilton Holt School, Dr. David Richard, at email@example.com.
