Dyson Summer Research Awards
Due to the COVID-19 crisis and in accordance with the Office of the Provost and the Office of Research guidelines, specific projects for which funds may be awarded are subject to continuation of the travel and on-campus restrictions currently in place.
For forty years Dyson has been fostering faculty-student research collaborations. Undergraduate research in Dyson College encourages student partnering with faculty in a variety of creative and scholarly endeavors that may include publications, presentations at symposia, poster sessions, performances and website development.
The goal of the Undergraduate Student-Faculty Research Initiative Awards has been to provide a ten-week summer immersion experience for students on a research or artistic project in collaboration with a faculty member. The Faculty Research Grants provide summer funding for faculty research-related expenses.
