Student Research Grants
The Worcester State Foundation has established the Student Research Grant Fund
to provide up to $10,000 annually to support undergraduate student research,
scholarship and creative activity. “I am proud of the board’s leadership and
support, not only of this fund, but of the many student scholarships, campus
improvements and meeting the many needs of our hardworking students and
faculty,” said Vice President for Institutional Advancement Tom McNamara.
“Worcester State University is known for the incredible research and scholarship
opportunities our faculty share with our students,” said McNamara. “The
Foundation Board’s decision to establish this fund is just one more example in
the long history of the board’s support of research.” In addition to
establishing this fund, the Foundation has supported more than 350 WSU Faculty
Mini-Grants since the grants were established in1999. Both programs are joint
efforts of the offices of Institutional Advancement and Academic Affairs to
promote scholarly and creative pursuits. “These research opportunities offer
extraordinary opportunities for our students to learn real world skills that
often translate into careers or graduate school opportunities,” said McNamara.
