The Rodney A. 埃里克森基金项目 is administered by the 本科教育办公室 and is designed to support undergraduate student engagement in original research, scholarship and creative work under the supervision of a research mentor. Students may use the grant to cover living expenses and project costs like supplies and travel.  

资金直接用于学生发起的艺术项目, 工程, 人文学科, sciences, and social sciences and facilitates experience in question generation, 建议写, 方法的实施和结果的沟通. Projects may be completed on any topic and may be related to supervising faculty’s research but should be primarily led by and conceptualized by the student. 申请通常在每年10月下旬开始.
