Enhancing the Undergraduate Experience Through Collaborative Research

PinS provides a unique opportunity for students to enhance their undergraduate experience through a collaborative research project. With the assistance of a faculty partner, students design and execute a project that involves in-depth study in their specific area of interest.

PinS funding helps cover the expenses necessary to ensure the completion and success of the project. Expenses may include supplies such as books, software, or lab equipment, travel for research, or materials like props for a play. Students may request up to $1500 each quarter.
