The Science and Technology Awards for Research (STAR) program seeks to enhance undergraduate education by providing funding for students to become engaged in research projects carried out in collaboration with a faculty member in the College of Science and Technology.

STAR is a coordinated effort to provide undergraduates with access to on-campus research and creative work opportunities. Proposals (which may be submitted by an individual student or a team of students) must be approved by a faculty sponsor and that student's department head.

Research Awards up to $1500 are awarded each semester.

Proposals are due the third Friday of each semester. See the Request for Proposals (RFP) below for complete information. STAR awards cannot be used to fund conference travel for presentation of research.
