The purpose of the Endeavor! Awards is to support the creative and research efforts of undergraduate students. All USI students from all majors are welcome.
About the Awards
The Endeavor! Awards have three components:
Student Collaboration Award
An award to help defray the costs associated with doing research or a creative project: lab work, equipment, materials, and travel to research sites. Students may apply for up to $2,500 through proposals they write with help from faculty mentors. The two deadlines are Tuesday, October 14, 2014, and Friday, February 13, 2015. Only electronic submissions will be accepted.
Student Presentation Award
A travel award to help defray costs of presenting a project at an off-campus professional meeting. The deadline is anytime but at least 30 days before the presentation if possible. Each student presenting must complete an Endeavor! Presentation proposal. Students applying for Endeavor! presentation awards for team competitions may request funding for the first and second presenters of the research or creative project only.
Symposium Undergraduate Research and Creative Works
A conference held in late April or early May for the display of student research and creative projects. Any undergraduate or graduate may apply.
