Funding Opportunities 

Broward Undergraduate Student Research Award

Any undergraduate student at Florida Atlantic University taking classes in Davie or Fort Lauderdale and engaged in research or creative activity under the mentorship of a Broward-based faculty member may be nominated for an award of $2,000 to support their work. The research or creative activity conducted by the student generally takes the form of directed research, independent study, or work on a thesis under the direct supervision of a faculty member, rather than work conducted to fulfill regular course or seminar requirements. 

Up to 10 awards will be given for the fall term and 10 awards for the spring term.  Students may receive only one Broward Undergraduate Research Award every twelve months. Grant recipients will be encouraged to present their research findings at a Research Symposium in the spring semester.  
Each student will be required to submit a two-page summary describing their participation in the research or creative effort at the end of the semester. 

Note that these are non-recurring dollars.  These awards are made possible through a 2+2 allocation from the Florida Department of Education. 



Annual Broward Student Research Symposium

March 27, 2015

Davie West Building 

This event features research activities of both Broward graduate and undergraduate students and gives student researchers the opportunity to experience presenting research (planned or ongoing) or course projects. In addition to the awarding of prizes, the event provides a forum for student interaction with faculty and peers while showcasing their work.

Thesis and dissertation work, individual and group ongoing or planned research, and course projects are all appropriate.  Options for the day include poster, multimedia and 10-minute oral presentations.


Faculty Opportunities 

Broward Faculty Development Award

Faculty mentors whose students receive an award will be able to spend up to an additional $1,000 on their own professional development.  This might include travel to a conference, registration for a local event, or another expense that supports their own learning.
