University of Southern Indiana

Student Collaboration Awards

The Endeavor! Research and Creativity Awards is a competitive program for undergraduates who are conducting scholarly research or creative endeavors at the University of Southern Indiana. Students are encouraged to apply for up to $2,500 through proposals that they write with help from their faculty sponsors.


Student-written project awards can be used to help defray costs for equipment, lab work, materials, and travel expenses to research sites necessary to complete the project.

All successful award participants including students who have been graduated, are required to present their research at the Endeavor Research and Creative Works Symposium on Thursday, April 7, 2016.

All equipment and excess materials purchased for the project using Endeavor! funds become the property of the faculty sponsor's department once the project is completed.

Project Award Deadlines

The two deadlines are Wednesday, October 14, 2015, and Friday, February 12, 2016. Submit proposals for Endeavor Awards electronically to Michael Strezewski Send the cover page, budget, and proposal in PDF format. Do not send hard copy proposals through the campus mail.

Proposal Worshops

All students and mentors are encouraged to attend Endeavor! proposal writing workshops sponsored by the Office of Sponsored Projects and Research before writing a proposal.
