STUDENT RESEARCH AND TRAVEL GRANT PROGRAM

Need funding to support your research, thesis, or travel to a conference to present your work?
Apply for a Student Research and Travel Grant (SRTG)!

 

Over the span of twenty years, the Student Research and Travel Grant (SRTG) Program has provided grant funding to New College of Florida students in support of research and travel associated with their thesis work, tutorials, and independent study projects. It is funded through the New College Alumni Association and the New College Foundation.

New College Student Research & Travel Grant (SRTG) funds support student research and travel projects. Students seeking support for research undertaken with a faculty advisor and for travel in connection with research are invited to apply. One student may apply for a research and/or travel grant to support activities involving several students. Projects rarely receive 100% funding. Requests for over $2,000 will not be considered without proper and thorough justification. Students are strongly advised to look for multiple sources of funding.

The following is a prioritized list of what would be funded; however, a strong ISP project application could be funded over a weak thesis application. Preference will be given to students who have never received a prior SRTG award.

  • Thesis related research that includes but not limited to research supplies, travel, equipment.
  • Pre-thesis related research that includes but not limited to research supplies, travel, equipment
  • Professional conference presentation – first or second author on the work is acceptable, presentation may be panel presentation, individual or poster (undergraduate conferences of a general nature such as NCUR do not qualify and neither does attendance at a professional conference without presenting work, regardless of the academic or professional value).  Individuals applying for conference presentations are encouraged to read E. Leininger, et al., “Ten simple rules for attending your first conference.”
  • ISP (must have a clear plan and/or directly related to AOC or thesis).
  • Course or Tutorial (must have a clear plan and/or directly related to AOC or thesis)
  • Study Abroad (project / program MUST be tied with academic program requirements)

Student applicants must request from a New College of Florida faculty advisor a letter of support submitted on the student’s behalf. Without this letter of support, the submission is not considered complete. If there is intent for a group project involving students, one student may apply for a grant to support academic activities and all students involved in the project must be named as members of the project workgroup.

Proposals are invited from current students in good academic standing two separate times each academic year. The Fall submission deadline is no later than 5:00 pm the Monday immediately following Fall Break and the Spring deadline is no later than 5:00 pm the Monday immediately following Spring Break. Completed submissions are reviewed by a committee of alumnae/i and faculty members.
