Crown College

Fellowships and Funding


This grant offers up to $400 for students to be actively involved in academic research and other faculty-sponsored projects. Active participation in research is an essential ingredient for high-quality educational experience and greatly facilitates the transition into the job market, professional, or graduate school. In addition, you can get academic credit for this work in the form of independent study, and, in some cases, as a Senior Thesis.
