Funding Sources for On Campus Research

Jan Serie Research Fellowship: The Jan Serie Fund was created to support student-faculty collaborative research and is awarded as a fellowship to provide stipend support for students doing full time research during the summer in any area of science or math. Research may take place at Macalester or another site, but all proposals and projects require a Macalester faculty mentor/sponsor who will participate and/or advise the student during the research experience. The deadline for applications for the Serie Fellowship is 5:00PM on February 12, 2018.

There are many ways to support student stipends for work in faculty labs.  Some faculty have their own grants that can support students and there are endowed funds on campus that support student stipends.  When you are talking with faculty about working with them, ask about how you might apply for funding.
