SGA funding is designed to help defray the cost of equipment, supplies, and domestic travel necessary to conduct the project. When traveling, the primary purpose of the travel must be to enable the student to conduct research. It is not intended as salary for the student, as a means to offset normal costs associated with course projects, nor is it intended to defray students' travel costs that are not directly related to research.
This application should be filled out by the student(s) and the faculty mentor(s). If more than one student is involved in the same project, submit a single application and identify each student involved in the project. Only a single faculty statement is required. Faculty members that have served as mentors on projects that received support within the past three years from the Office of Undergraduate Research must complete the prior support portion of the application. The prior support should: 1) summarize the outcomes of past project(s); and 2) include information about the impact of the previously funded project(s) on the student(s) (e.g., results were presented at a conference; contributed to student being accepted into a graduate program; student received an award related to the project; among other possible outcomes). Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.
Award recipients will be required to participate in the SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference (SURC)/SRCC at Buffalo State on April 23, 2022. The SURC/SRCC provides students an opportunity to present their preliminary or completed research and creative activities in a student-friendly and supportive environment. Note: This requirement also applies to students graduating in December 2021.Fall Deadlines:
The Office of Undergraduate Research strives to review applications and notify students and faculty mentors within two weeks of the deadline date. Faculty mentors are expected to share award notification information with their student(s) and to help students with any necessary paperwork. Students are not contacted directly.
Note: It is highly recommended that you (student) directly contact your faculty mentor to be sure they received the automated message sent to them with information about how to access your application. If your mentor did not receive this message, re-check their email to be sure you entered it correctly. If your mentor cannot access the application, they should email: firstname.lastname@example.orgDepartment/Program:
If project involves research requiring compliance review (see http://undergraduateresearch.buffalostate.edu/research-compliance) statement must include timeline for review. No research funds will be released until completion of compliance review (research exempt or approved).Description of outcomes from prior support from the Office of Undergraduate Research. Describe activities (e.g., presentations, performances, and/or publications) and other outcomes for students you mentored that received funding within the past 3 years from the Office of Undergraduate Research. If none of your students have been funded by the Office of Undergraduate Research in the past 3 years, leave this question blank.
