The MSGC Apprenticeship Program is an opportunity for Montana students working in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) to receive funding to work on a research project with an advisor on their campus. Students accepted into the Apprenticeship Program are expected to work 160-500 hours on their research project during the academic year and will be paid up to $5000.
The priority application deadline for MSGC Apprenticeships for the 2013-2014 academic year is April 1, 2013.
Since March 1999, the Montana Space Grant Consortium has made awards available to undergraduate students involved in research activities at smaller Montana campuses. This is an opportunity for students not at MSU, UM, or MT Tech to have funding for a research project. ARES projects consist of a student and faculty mentor working on research that goes beyond what is taught in the classroom. Student awards will be $750 per semester or $500 per quarter.
Students must make a presentation about their research: this could be at the annual MSGC Student Research Symposium in Bozeman, a seminar given on their campus, a talk at the annual Montana Academy of Sciences meeting, or in a visit to a K-12 classroom.
ARES applications for the 2013 spring semester are due on February 15, 2013.
The Undergraduate Scholars Program (USP) is designed to encourage, facilitate and support undergraduate research in collaboration with faculty. "Research" in the USP context is interpreted as any scholarly or creative activity ranging from traditional scientific experimentation to the creation of new artistic works.
The Undergraduate Scholars Program (USP) is dedicated to helping students pursue scholarly activities in all disciplines by providing funding to students who undertake an investigative or creative project in collaboration with a faculty mentor. We encourage you to put together a research project and submit a proposal. We look forward to having the opportunity to fund your work!
