Award and Program Details

Funding awarded to Research Scholars is intended to be used for:

  • student salary (paid at $10.00/hour) while working on research projects
  • research support (e.g. lab supplies for student project)
  • travel to meetings/conferences (see budget below for details)


Students continue to be eligible for WRSP funding provided they maintain a 3.3 grade point average and make consistent progress as a full-time student toward a degree. WRSP students are expected to participate in a 1-credit seminar class each year to study the scientific process, ethics, public speaking, and writing. The 2015-2016 version of this seminar is the Special Topics course AS 2490.  Research Scholars are also encouraged to attend weekly departmental seminars (i.e., presentations by invited speakers). Funding is also available to faculty mentors.
