About MURACE Summer research funding

Access the application at the link here or down below-- Summer Funding Application 

The opportunity for undergraduate students to participate in mentored research or creative activities is an important part of Georgia College & State University’s emphasis on transformative learning experiences. Many students engage in scholarship during the academic year, but the most intensive and rewarding work often occurs during the summer months when both the student and their mentor can devote more attention to their work without the pressures of regular semester commitments. This can be very challenging for students who need to earn income over the summer to support themselves.

MURACE Summer Scholarship Funding gives up to four (4) Georgia College & State University undergraduate students the opportunity to work on mentored research or creative projects for 8-weeks over the summer while getting compensated for their time. By the end of the summer, students should be prepared to share their work at the Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference as well as a conference in the discipline of the project. Projects from all disciplines are welcome.

The 2024 MURACE Summer Scholarship award amount is $2500 (before taxes and mandated deductions) for each student recipient and $500 (before taxes and mandated deductions) for mentors. Any full-time or part-time member of the teaching faculty is eligible to serve as mentors for undergraduate students. Faculty may mentor any number of student research projects, but can only receive a maximum of $1,000 for mentoring multiple students who receive funding. An additional $500 is available to purchase supplies related to the project. The applications are double blind.
