Apply Now for Undergraduate Research Funding Awards

The Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering & Information Technology (CEIT) invites students to submit research proposals under the CEIT Undergraduate Research awards (CEIT-UR) Program.

Apply Now!

The goal of these awards is to enhance student experiential learning via hands-on research projects in collaboration with faculty.  By engaging in these projects, students will develop skills to critically read research literature, acquire and interpret data, integrate and implement technology, write reports and present findings.

CEIT students may submit proposals individually or as a team, with interdisciplinary teams encouraged. The deadline for accepting submissions is Monday, October 14, 2013.  Award winners will be announced on October 21, 2013. Awardees are expected to present a poster summarizing their results during the CEIT Research Symposium in April 2014, and to write a final report no later than May 30, 2014. Visit the CEIT Symposium Poster Gallery to see students’ research posters from last year.

Proposals will be awarded up to  $2,500 to fund equipment, materials, travel, training, or other expenses necessary for the research.  To be considered for one of the CEIT-UR awards, log in to your georgiasouthern.edu Gmail account, then complete and submit the form located at this link.
