Undergraduate students enrolled in any program at Clarion University are invited to apply for up to $500 in funds to support independent research or a scholarly project to be conducted in collaboration with a faculty or staff project advisor.

In those instances where the project is on-going, or expected to begin after April, the student will provide/present the current status of the project at the April 2013 conference or present the final results at the following year's research seminar.
