Vital Facts

    • Twenty vouchers of up to $1,000 will be available to AU student-mentor pairs engaged in meritorious research from any college
    • The deadline for applications will be Monday, September 30 at 5:00 p.m. Studios will be conducted in October.
    • All full time AU graduate or undergraduate students working with a full time AU faculty mentor on the Summerville or Health Science campus are eligible.
    • Future deliverables from the project are strongly encouraged: including plans for publication, presentation, performance, attendance of legitimate conferences, apprenticeships, internships or otherwise discipline-specific metrics for scholarship
    • Projects funded to specific student-mentor pairs in previous funding cycles may be continued (with the same or different student-mentor pair), however a progress report (including articulating how the previous funds were spent) will be required prior to consideration of the proposal. Continuation projects for the same student-mentor pair (with a different project) will be treated similarly.

Please note: Priority will be given to new projects, but if funding allows, we will entertain continuing projects.

  • It is generally expected that the funds be used by the end of the fiscal year (or academic year). For instance, a studio that was presented in Oct 2017, who received funds in Jan 2018, should make every effort to use those funds by the end of June 2018.
  • If the student presenting the project is unable to continue education at AU prior to the funds being awarded, the project will be disqualified.
  • Funds  cannot be used for courtesy food costs, such as buying lunches for study participants.
