Student Project Funding

Rachel Carson College has a modest fund to support Rachel Carson students in the following four areas: 

  1. Academic Research 
  2. Creative Initiatives 
  3. Artistic Endeavors 
  4. Special Events

The Individual Student Project Fund supports individual undergraduate student research and special projects. 

Any registered Rachel Carson College undergraduate student is eligible to submit an application for funding. Funds can only be given to the specific Rachel Carson student applicant for expenses with the Rachel Carson student fund. All funding decisions will be based on the merit of the research/project, the extent to which the research/project will benefit the college and/or university community, and the available funds.
