DALE S. STROHL ’58 AWARDS for Research Excellence in Humanities and Social Sciences

The College of Arts and Sciences announces several undergraduate research grant opportunities:

DALE S. STROHL ’58 AWARDS for Research Excellence in Humanities and Social Sciences:
Strohl Undergraduate Research Grants and Strohl Senior Thesis Grants

Made possible by a generous gift from Dale S. Strohl ’58, the College of Arts and Sciences offers funding to encourage students to engage in independent inquiry, artistic creation, and scholarship, under faculty supervision. The Dale S. Strohl ’58 Awards support research in the Humanities and Social Sciences for students working with any Lehigh faculty member. These grants are intended to expand the experiences, perspectives, and skills of our students through involvement in research. Travel, research supplies and other valid expenses may be reimbursed up to the limit of an individual grant. Undergraduate Research Grants may fund up to $3,000 and, if possible, should be combined with funding from other sources (i.e., from faculty advisers, department chairs, center directors…). Senior Thesis Grants may fund up to $5,000. Research should be completed within one year of receipt of the award. The grant recipient will then submit a brief report on the results of the project to the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs.

The deadline for both Strohl award programs is Thursday, October 18th.

COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH GRANTS

The College of Arts and Sciences offers funding to encourage students to engage in independent inquiry, artistic creation, and scholarship, under faculty supervision. These grants are intended to enhance opportunities for undergraduate research in the college. Travel, research supplies and other valid expenses may be reimbursed up to the limit of an individual grant. Grants will normally fall into a range from $100 to $1500 and, if possible, should be combined with funding from other sources (i.e., from faculty advisers, department chairs, center directors…). Research should be completed within one year of receipt of the award. The grant recipient will then submit a brief report on the results of the project to the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs.

These grants are designed to increase, enhance, and support undergraduate research in our college. Student in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences are encouraged to apply. Grant applications will require a faculty adviser’s support and endorsement, so an early step should be a discussion with a faculty member you might work with. The deadline for a Spring, 2012 grant is November 7th.
