Research and Conference Information
Grand Valley On-campus Opportunities
There are many excellent opportunities both on and off campus for students to do research and to present at conferences.
Student Scholars Day
Student Scholars Day (SSD) is held annually to celebrate the scholarship and creative work performed by GVSU students. The day showcases faculty-mentored student work, shared through many venues, including (but not limited to) oral presentations, discussion and panel sessions, fine arts exhibits and performances, and poster presentations. Held in early April.
Student Summer Scholars
The Student Summer Scholars Program (S3) provides funds for a student and faculty mentor to devote twelve weeks to a research and/or creative project during the spring/summer semester. Generally, S3 Grants provide a student stipend, faculty stipend, and a small budget for supplies. Deadline is mid-January.
The Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarship is pleased to announce a new grant opportunity for the summer of 2013. The Modified Summer Scholar (MS3) program provides an opportunity for lower division or first year transfer students to participate in a structured research experience under the guidance of a faculty mentor. This experience would vary from the traditional S3 in the duration, as well as the depth/scope of the research project.
