Purpose: Students may apply for and receive awards offered through the Center for Research &
Scholarship (CRS) for research projects. Students, either as individuals or as research teams, will be

needed for the execution of research projects. Students interested in applying for these awards will need
to meet criteria established by CRS, including an identified faculty sponsor.
