Research Funding

Phyllis Hartrich Memorial Award
Award Amount: Up to $2,000

The Phyllis Hartrich Memorial Award supports independent undergraduate research. This award honors the memory of Phyllis Hartrich, who served for many years as the Undergraduate Coordinator in our department. The research project must be designed and carried out by students in consultation with their advisors. The award is designed to defray expenses directly related to research, including equipment and travel to research sites. No funds will be provided for travel to conferences or for research designed by a faculty member. Awards will be announced at the annual department graduation in May, and will cover expenses for research projects carried out over the subsequent calendar year.

The selection committee will make one or more awards totaling up to $2,000. Students planning to graduate in May 2019 are not eligible, but those planning to graduate in December 2019 or later are encouraged to submit proposals.
