IRAEA funds research scholarships for undergraduate students from a wide-range of disciplines to participate in faculty-led research projects that address issues relevant to the IRAEA mission. Awards are available for semester-, academic year-, and summer-length research projects. Additional support is available for student travel to regional or national conferences at which the student presents the results of the sponsored research project.
With IRAEA undergraduate research scholarships, faculty and students have the opportunity to explore academic interests beyond the classroom. Students get hands-on experience with research and acquire academic and professional skills and credentials, and faculty get help with their research projects. Faculty at MSU must apply on behalf of student researchers.
All MSU undergraduate students in good academic standing are eligible to apply. Students must be enrolled at MSU (for awards made during the academic year) and be expected to return to MSU in the fall semester (for awards made during the summer).
Awards for summer support may be requested in the range of $1,500 - $2,000, contingent on the level of student involvement in the research.
Additional support is available for student travel to regional or national conferences at which the student presents the results of the research. Faculty requesting student travel funds should include a description of the conference, including dates, and an anticipated travel budget. Awards are contingent upon funding availability.
