Twenty-two College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) | Maxwell School students have been awarded grants from the Syracuse Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Engagement (SOURCE) and the Renée Crown University Honors Program. The awards support undergraduate students engaged in original research projects.

The 22 A&S | Maxwell students receiving funding represent nearly one third of the 63 student award winners from across all Syracuse University schools and colleges. In addition, nine A&S faculty mentors have been awarded SOURCE Research Assistant grants, which will fund the hire of 12 undergraduate students in total to take part in faculty-led research projects.

The SOURCE and Honors Program funding supports timely and diverse undergraduate scholarly research. The grant programs strengthen the University’s position as a preeminent and inclusive student-focused research institution and provide resources to support undergraduate student research participation. The next application cycle for summer 2022 and academic year 22-23 grants will be due in February and March. Find out more on the SOURCE website.
