Undergraduate and graduate students may apply for research funding through Sigma Xi’s Grants-in-Aid of Research program.
The deadline is October 15, 2014.
The program awards grants of up to $1,000 to students from all areas of the sciences and engineering. Designated funds from the National Academy of Sciences allow for grants of up to $5,000 for astronomy research and $2,500 for vision related research. Students use the funding to pay for travel expenses to and from a research site, or for purchase of non-standard laboratory equipment necessary to complete a specific research project.
