S. Erving Severtson Research Fellowship Forest Foundation Undergraduate Research Program
In May 2000, a grant was awarded to the Division of Social Sciences for a student-faculty research program to honor S. Erving Severtson. Endowed by the Forest Foundation, the grant seeks to encourage joint student and faculty research by providing financial assistance. For student researchers, the grant covers up to $500 for project expenses and a $2500 award per student. Faculty are also eligible for up to $1100 for travel and other project expenses per project. The competitive application process is open to any interested faculty in the Division of Social Sciences and declared Social Science majors. The faculty project coordinator must submit a completed application package comprised of both faculty and student application forms and student transcripts. (A separate application is required for each project.) The Division of Social Sciences Chairs’ Council will review all submissions and notify applicants of its decisions. By its very nature, the DSS Chairs’ Council is an interdisciplinary group of scholars and application materials need to be prepared with this audience in mind.
