Office of Student Research
Truman provides many different venues for both undergraduate and graduate students to participate in original research, whether classroom-based or faculty-directed research projects. There are also several summer research programs dedicated to fostering student research, such as the McNair Program and the TruScholars Program.
In addition, a student who is research-oriented or who plans to seek advanced training in his or her field may develop a research program that culminates in a research project with professors such as a capstone project. Truman students have published their research findings in national journals, presented at professional conferences, and participated in Truman’s annual Student Research Conference.

Grant applications may request up to $750 and can cover student stipends, supplies and travel to conduct research. Applications are due November 8 by 11:59 pm.
