Denison provides a $3,700 stipend, room costs, and materials support for its Summer Scholars. The normal period is for 10 weeks of research. All students must produce a scholarly project and present their research in a public forum.
Young Scholar awards support either independent research under Denison faculty supervision or collaborative research with Denison faculty. Applications are evaluated by the Student Research Grants Committee. Awards will not be made for projects requiring a substantial portion of time away from Denison. Contact the Director of The Gilpatrick Center for Student Research and Fellowships.
Anderson and Bowen Summer Research Assistantships support summer science research with a Denison faculty member. The Anderson Endowment Program and the Bowen Summer Scholarship Program provide Denison an opportunity to support student research in the sciences that is conducted under the guidance of a Denison science faculty member. The research experience occurs over a 10-week continuous period during the summer and includes conducting a research project under the guidance of the sponsor. Students are paid a stipend of $3,700, plus a room allowance for campus housing. Each student also has access to a small budget of $500 to cover supplies, software, equipment, and other items needed to perform the research. Contact Jessica Rettig, Department of Biology.
Denison University Research Foundation awards support students doing collaborative research with Denison faculty. Denison faculty may apply for DURF funds to support a Denison student assistant for the summer. Any qualified Denison student is eligible. Contact Associate Provost, Susan Garcia or the Assistant to the Associate Provost, Cathy Van Sickle.
Woodyard Scholar awards provide six to eight students with scholarships to carry out individual or collaborative projects in the area of "Religion and Civic Responsibility." Contact David Woodyard, Department of Religion.
Battelle Memorial Institute awards support Denison students to participate in research projects throughout the world. Some awards for entire summer support may be given, whereas other awards may be for a short stay at a remote location where a student needs to carry out data collection. Contact Eric Liebl, Department of Biology.
Student research may also be supported by outside grants received by faculty in various departments.
