LSAMP Academic-Year Research Grants
North Star STEM students who wish to conduct research with a faculty mentor are eligible to apply for $1000 academic-year research grants. These grants provides a stipend for 100 hours of research and can also be used for research supplies. This is a great way to continue research you’ve been working on, try out research if you have not done it before, or to learn about a sub-field in your major.
1) Find a faculty mentor whose research interests you.
2) Make sure you are eligible for, and are a member of Minnesota’s North Star STEM (see “overview” tab).
3) Fill out the application with your mentor. Have your mentor email the completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4) When you have completed the 100 hours of research, complete the research report form and email it to email@example.com.
If you have any questions about the grants or are wondering if you are eligible, please contact Rebekah Dupont at 612-330-1042 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
