Student Research Funds Request Form


Student Research Funds support various scholarly activities of full-time St. Lawrence University students including materials, laboratory supplies, and travel related to research. These funds, administered by the Academic Dean’s office, are awarded on a case-by-case basis with awards as high as $600 per student per academic year. Proposals are evaluated on the justification of the funds requested, the potential significance for the student’s intellectual development, and the appropriateness of the project as it relates to the student’s academic plan at St. Lawrence. All requests will be reviewed by the Associate Dean of Faculty Affairs.
