Barnett Research Award

Victor H. and Elizabeth Barnett Research Award 

A great research opportunity for you and a fellow student to participate in beginning of the spring semester. The Victor H. and Elizabeth Research Award is offered through the Pott College of Science, Engineering, and Education and supports undergraduate research. The program will provide students with a good standing to submit a research proposal in collaboration with a sponsoring faculty member. The research award is $1000.00. Please find submission guidelines below.  

Please find the attached information on the Barnett Award including a further explanation, project cover page, abstract guidelines, proposal outline and budget form.  All applications are due to the Dean’s office by 4:30 pm,  November 1st.  I will be sending an email to all students in the college, however I would encourage you to reach out and mentor a student through the research process. It can be rewarding to both you and the student. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to call.
