College Colloquium Student Research Grant
Campus Deadline: February 9, 2022 for both student applications and faculty recommendations
College Colloquium Student Research Grants offer Willamette undergraduates the opportunity to undertake a scholarly, creative, or professional research project during the summer between their first and second years. Approximately six grants of up to $3,500 are available each year. Students may apply for these competitive grants only as first-year students. Projects must be related to the subject of the applicant's College Colloquium. Projects may be creative and artistic, literary, investigative, interdisciplinary, and performative. Recent Colloquium grant recipients have:
- Made a documentary film about Rwanda's efforts to recover from genocide
- taught photography to children in South Africa as part of an exploration of art as a political force
- developed an environmental curriculum for area high school students focused on local resource use issues
- examined Virginia Woolf's treatment of relationships through a close reading of novels including To the Lighthouse and Mrs. Dalloway
- investigated weighted pebbling numbers of graphs and theorems concerning them
- analyzed the debates over Female Genital Cutting as a discourse about cultural sensitivity
The deadline for applications for the College Colloquium Student Research program is February 9, 2022. Proposals, transcripts, and supporting materials must be submitted online.
Sponsors should submit their recommendations online.
