The Undergraduate Research Scholarship and the International Research Grant for Undergraduates in the Arts and Sciences are scholarships ranging from $500 to $6,000. The Honors Committee does not require that applicants be members of the Arts and Sciences Honors Program; however, the committee generally gives preference to students who are candidates for graduation with research distinction or with honors research distinction, because they have demonstrated the sort of academic ability and commitment which indicates the likelihood of success in completing a major research project. Selections will be made in November. The application can be found online, and if you have further questions, contact the Arts and Sciences Honors Office at (614) 292-5104.
Be sure to scope out the College of Arts and Sciences monthly Undergraduate Newsletter! The letter covers topics such as new program offerings, academic opportunities that take place outside the classroom (research, study abroad, internships and service learning), arts and sciences student organizations, scholarships and grants, opportunities to meet with ASC faculty, student events, resources and more.
The August 2018 letter can be found on the Newsletter homepage.
