Congratulations to our undergraduate student Julian Stanley for this award!
The Scholars Independent Research Fellowships (SIRFs) are designed to support original, student-initiated independent research, creative performance, and project making in close collaboration with a faculty mentor. Students are eligible to apply for individual SIRF awards of up to $5,000 to be used during the summer. The SIRFs are designed to help expand opportunities for students to work closely with faculty members and gain insight into and experience with the academic research undertaken by faculty members. More than just a financial award, as part of the SIRF application process, University Scholars receive training in how to craft and carry out research proposals.
