Congratulations to all Aspire Internal Grant Student Research and Creative Arts AY 2015/2016 Awardees

The Aspire Student Research Program hopes to support students in the process of study or discovery that will produce new insights, theories, or will apply such knowledge to problem-solving within the discipline or in society.
The Aspire Creative Arts Program wishes to support students in their creation or presentation of creative works.  Eligible projects are usually found in the categories of music, theater, dance visual arts, and creative writing.  Please see our guidelines for a more detailed list of examples. 
For this competition the maximum amount of money awarded is $500 for graduate students, $300 for all others, which can be used to cover SEET related costs.  We ask students to have a faculty mentor and to work closely with them while preparing for this competition.  Students are also expected to complete a final report form upon the completion of the project.
