iHuman Sciences Initiative Grant Program

The iHuman Sciences initiative (iHSci) of the departments of Psychology and Exercise Science provides funding for iHSci student/faculty collaborative research program at Willamette.


iHuman Science student-faculty collaborative research awards are designated specifically to support interdisciplinary research projects that tie other disciplinary foci to Exercise Science or Psychology. To foster interdisciplinary cooperation, a collaborator from either Psychology or Exercise Science is required on each application. Projects can be conducted over the summer or during the academic year but results must be presented at Student Scholarship Recognition Day in the subsequent academic year, as well as at a peer-reviewed regional or national conference. Two awards, to a maximum of $7,000 each, are available in 2016-17 to cover participating faculty (maximum $1,500) and student stipends, equipment costs, and other study-related expenses.
