Student-Faculty Academic Partnership Grant

Augustana College provides Academic Partnership Grants to support student involvement in faculty members’ scholarly and creative projects. Students selected by faculty will undertake projects intended to enrich their scholarly interests and abilities and prepare them for advanced research of their own.

Students do not apply directly to the Academic Partnership Grant program. Faculty will submit a grant application on their behalf.

The application deadline for summer and 2015-16 academic year grants is April 8, 2015. Smaller grants are available for shorter-term projects with a rolling deadline until funds are exhausted.

Guidelines

Faculty may request funding for one or more student academic partners for a period of up to one year. (If a project extends beyond a single year, the faculty member must submit a new grant application each year.)

Students will be paid on a stipend of $660 per term, payable at the beginning of the term (i.e. $660/one term; $1,320/two terms; $1,980/three terms; $2,640/four terms – including summer).

Student involvement in academic partnership work should average eight hours/week over the course of the 10-week term during the school year. (Students should work no more than seven hours/week at other on-campus jobs during the duration of the paid partnership.)

Student involvement in academic partnership work over the summer should assume an 80-hour commitment over the course of the summer.  The average hours/week and number of week should be agreed upon in advance by the faculty member and student.

Student academic partners must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 at the time of selection.

When taking part in academic partnerships during the academic year, students must be enrolled full-time at Augustana.

When taking part in academic partnerships during the summer, the student must have been enrolled full-time at Augustana in the prior spring term.

Student-Faculty Academic Partnership projects may not be taken for credit.

In disciplines where it is appropriate, it is encouraged that the student partner be named as a co-author or included in the acknowledgements.
