Research Programs at Tech
Traditional Undergraduate Research Program
Each participating student will receive a $1,500 stipend payable in three increments. For purposes of the awards, research is broadly defined and may include investigations of a cultural or historical question, documentary or production arts, as well as laboratory or field research more typically associated with the science or engineering disciplines.
Undergraduate students wishing to participate in the Undergraduate Research Program must submit a proposal. Proposals are now being accepted for AY 2013-14. Proposal deadline is 5:00 p.m. Thursday, March 14.
Please note: students should develop their proposals with the assistance of their Research Supervisor/Mentor. The Proposal must follow the guidelines.
The Undergraduate Research Committee is pleased to offer a new program called RAMP (Research Assistant Mentorship Program). RAMP is designed to fund small research teams consisting of faculty and undergraduates (primarily freshmen and sophomores). Undergraduates to be funded do not have to be identified prior to submitting the proposal.
The AY 2013-14 Call for Proposals will be out soon.
The Undergraduate Research Committee is pleased to offer a new program called Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF). SURF is designed to provide an intensive, in-depth research experience to a small number of Montana Tech undergraduate students. Projects will span 8-10 weeks.
The AY 2013-14 Call for Proposals can be viewed HERE.
