The Robert Vincent Fund will provide up to three undergraduate student awards to support advanced research by undergraduate students who have completed freshman year, with a preference for pre-medical students.
The students chosen will be named “Robert Vincent Scholars” and will conduct their research during the 2022 summer and through the fall. Up to three students will receive this award. Because we do not know what on campus summer options will be, applicants should plan for the research to take place in person, although it might be necessary to shift to virtual research.
The Robert Vincent Scholars will
- Conduct scientific research under the direction of a faculty mentor.
- Conduct scientific research that will prepare them for medical school or for graduate study.
The Robert Vincent Fund for Undergraduate Research is an Endowed fund that is awarded annually. Funded students will receive at least $2000 to support their research (funds may vary slightly each year). Faculty mentors will receive $500.
According to the Tax Office 3-8313, the student should receive a 1098T and report this information on their taxes. It can, therefore, have an impact on student financial aid. Please let us know if this impact creates difficulty for a student’s participation.
