Columbia College is able to provide a small research fund to Columbia College students conducting approved research for their senior theses. The average amount awarded is up to a maximum of $250. In certain situations (for example, if international travel is required or if special materials or services are required, as confirmed by faculty advisers), additional funds may be awarded up to a maximum of $500.
The process for requesting funds is as follows:
- Students must complete the online Columbia College Senior Thesis Funding Application.
- An automatic email will be sent to the student's Faculty Adviser for their approval on the proposed senior thesis project and budget. This email will contain instructions and a link for online approval.
- The deadline for senior thesis funding each year is the last day of classes for the Fall term. Applications will be reviewed after the deadline.
- Students with approved applications will receive a notification from Undergraduate Research and Fellowships.
General questions about Senior Thesis Funding can be directed to the office of Undergraduate Research and Fellowships at email@example.com. Faculty who have specific questions may contact Ariella Lang, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Director of Undergraudate Research and Fellowships at firstname.lastname@example.org.
