The mission of the Gilpatrick Center for Student Research and Fellowships is to support the efforts of Denison students who aspire to excellence in undergraduate and post-graduate scholarship and education. The faculty and staff of the Center commit themselves to helping motivated students imagine, design, and execute integrated plans of scholarship and related activities that will position them for academic and professional achievement, both in and beyond the undergraduate experience.
The Gilpatrick Center is the hub for programs that promote excellence in student research, cultivate the pursuit of post-graduate scholarships and fellowships, and train students in the best ways to apply for and acquire those awards.
To fulfill its mission the Gilpatrick Center oversees several programs including: advising and supporting students applying for post-graduate fellowships; coordinating and implementing the Summer Scholars programs outside of the sciences; convening meetings of the Student Research Grants Committee and implementing their decisions; administering the Great Opportunity, R.C. Good Student Research Awards, the Student Academic Travel Fund, and the Barbara Furin Sloat Fund programs; and participating in the administration of the A. Blair Knapp, K.I. Brown, Alumnae Endowed Scholarships, and Titus Hepp Award programs.
