These scholarships provide support for collaborative research between undergraduate students and faculty or research/instructional academic staff members. The student researcher receives $3,000, and the faculty/staff receives $1,000 to help offset research costs.
Students must have at least junior standing at the time of application.
The Holstrom Scholarships require an environmental focus. The McPherson Eye Research Institute will continue to sponsor one additional Hilldale Fellowship for vision based research (including bio-engineering, imaging, data visualization, ophthalmology and general biology of the eye).
The application deadline is February 12, 2018.
Directions for accessing the on-line application, eligibility and selection criteria, and FAQs can be found at the Undergraduate Academic Awards website: Hilldale Undergraduate/Faculty Research Fellowship and Holstrom Environmental Scholarship.
