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.

To apply:

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 stem@augsburg.edu.

4) When you have completed the 100 hours of research, complete the research report form and email it to stem@augsburg.edu.

If you have any questions about the grants or are wondering if you are eligible, please contact Rebekah Dupont at 612-330-1042 or dupont@augsburg.edu.
