Funding Opportunities for Student Research

 Professor Louis Jefferson Long Student-Faculty Research Fund

This is an endowed fund established by Harry W. Shepard, Class of 1942, and his wife Patricia, in memory of Dr. Jeff Long, Professor of Economics at Allegheny from 1935 to 1951 and Treasurer of the College during his last decade of service.

Support is provided for collaborative student/faculty research in all disciplines. The fund will support a wide range of collaborative research activity, including but not limited to: senior projects, purchase of equipment needed for special projects, student-faculty travel to symposia or workshops, summer research efforts, support for ACCEL Travel Seminars, etc. Awards will be made by the Provost (no deadline).

Students should send a brief proposal of their research project to the Provost along with a supporting memo from the faculty member involved. The proposal should indicate whether they are receiving funding from other sources (department, faculty grants, etc.), and it should include a budget. The Provost office will act on the request as soon as all of the requested information is received.
