Each semester, The College of New Jersey’s chapter of the national scholastic honor society Phi Kappa Phi offers Student-Faculty Research Awards of $250. Undergraduates from all disciplines are eligible. The purpose of these awards is to support and encourage student involvement in serious academic research. These awards require student recipients to commit at least five hours per week for a semester to working with a faculty member on academic research. Although the work performed by student recipients may result in academic credit, the awards are determined without reference to whether a project is designed to earn academic credit. At the end of the project, students receiving an award are required to submit a final report in the form of a letter signed by both the faculty member and the student. Recipients are also expected to make a presentation at the Celebration of Student Achievement.
