Partners in Scholarship

To encourage greater student-faculty research partnerships, our department has sponsored more than 15 student-faculty PinS (Partners in Scholarship) projects!

Through the Undergraduate Research Center, undergraduates can find funding to support a research project with a faculty member, get summer research grants, travel to an academic conference, or participate in the Undergraduate Research Symposium.

Speak to your political science adviser today if you are interested in partnering with a faculty member on original research!

Recent PinS projects include

  • the cleanup of a local toxic waste site
  • research on the initiative process in Colorado
  • an exploration of how Denver-area local criminal courts function

For more information on applying for PinS and deadlines, see the Undergraduate Research Center Web page.

External fellowships are also available to support student research!
