Eagle Scholars Program for Undergraduate Research (Eagle SPUR)

The Eagle Scholars Program for Undergraduate Research (Eagle SPUR) is a competitive funding competition in which undergraduates conduct independent research or creative activity in collaboration with a Faculty Affiliate.  Students may receive up to $1000 to support travel, to purchase equipment and supplies, and/or to be used as a stipend.  The deadline for the submission of proposals will be during the semester before the time when the work will actually be conducted (summers excluded).  Eagle Scholars will be expected to present the findings of their project to a scholarly audience within a year of its completion. Much more information about Eagle SPUR may be found in the Eagle SPUR Guidelines and Frequently Asked Questions links below.

Applying to Fall 2014 Eagle SPUR - DEADLINE TO APPLY IS OCTOBER 15, 2014.  The application requires a project proposal of approximately 1350 words plus a budget and bibliography, and requires answering a series of questions about the work to be undertaken.  The Faculty Mentor must also complete an application.  Links for both applications are given below.
