Info-Session: C2SMART Center 2022 Funding for Student Research Projects and Initiatives
November 19, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Have an idea for a startup, research project, or other academic program?
This information session will walk students and faculty mentors through the different opportunities for funding available through the C2SMART Center’s annual call for proposals.
This year, the C2SMART Center is seeking to expand its platform for providing student opportunities, particularly for students belonging to under-represented groups. We are widening our student-led research focus to include flexible, agile funding for student-driven projects, entrepreneurship, and events. To that end, C2SMART is calling for proposals opening a sub-RFP exclusively led by graduate students to Masters and PhD students looking to:
• launch or expand a graduate research project related to the student’s area of research,
• incubate an idea or innovation towards a commercial or nonprofit enterprise,
• develop mentorship or programming for K-12 or undergraduate students, and
• pre-professional networking activities such as panels events or roundtable discussions that will be made available to other students throughout the consortium.
Successful proposals should identify a faculty mentor from the C2SMART consortium to work under.
