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.
The Office of Student Research is accepting Grants-in-Aid of Scholarship and Research (GIASR) applications for research and creative scholarship conducted Spring 2021. Grant applications may request up to $750 and can cover student stipends, supplies and travel to conduct research. A virtual GIASR proposal writing workshop for students will be held October 26th from 3:30-5:00 pm. Applications are due Wednesday, November 11th.
The Office of Student Research is accepting Conference Travel Scholarship applications for students presenting the results of their research or creative scholarship at a conference held January-June 2021. Students must have completed or be currently involved in a faculty-mentored research experience and plan on presenting at the conference. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Spring 2021 Conference Travel Scholarship will only cover student registration to attend a virtual conference. Applications are due Wednesday, November 11th.
While many conferences have been canceled due to COVID-19, the 2021 National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) will be held virtually April 12-14. Students from all fields are welcome to submit an abstract for this conference. Abstract guidelines can be viewed here. While submitting your abstract, please enter the Office of Student Research information into the field of the undergraduate research coordinator. Students can apply for the Conference Travel Scholarship to cover conference registration costs; however, an abstract accepted to NCUR does not guarantee that you will be awarded the Conference Travel Scholarship. If you are interested in submitting an abstract for NCUR, it should be submitted using the NCUR portal by December 1st, 2020.
