Bernadette Haig, Class of 2018, at OSA Biophotonics Congress
In an effort to support students who have had their research accepted for presentation at a professional conference, FCRH accepts requests for funding to help defray costs associated with attendance. In 2019-2020, we funded 28 grants for travel around the country and internationally as well. Students may apply for up to $800 per academic year to reimburse their travel expenses. Please do not hesitate to email Dean Annunziato for more information or to discuss specific requests. For 2020-2021, Fordham University has currently suspended travel and the travel grants program will resume when this status changes.
Deadline: Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. All requests for travel support funding should be made in advance of the conference.
FCRH provides funding for students to conduct supervised research across all disciplines throughout the academic year. Due to the pandemic, our summer grants program will be extending into the fall 2020 semester. We are aiming to offer academic year grants again in spring 2021.
Research Grants serve as a vehicle for students to become intimately engaged in the research process as they work on their own project or that of a faculty mentor. A goal of this funding is to provide students with the dedicated time to receive training in the research methods of their discipline as they work to collect and analyze data, develop an original composition, or participate in other appropriate scholarly and creative activities. With the guidance of their mentor, students are expected to learn about how their work fits in with the larger academic community as they prepare their projects for public dissemination and presentation. With the support of these mechanisms, FCRH students have presented their findings at prestigious venues around the country.
Deadlines: Applications are due by midnight. Faculty recommendations can be submitted at any time; they are due to this link by the day after the deadline. Please note that applications missing a recommendation will not be considered further.
