Research funding is available to Oglethorpe undergraduates, thanks to the Philip Weltner Library student research development fund, established in 2016.
Students may apply annually for funding to defray costs incurred while conducting or presenting research. Eligible uses of the funds include attending conferences, research-related equipment, and project and logistical expenses.
Nearly 35 stipends have been awarded since 2016. In past years, students used the funding within a wide range of disciplines, including biology, art history, English, chemistry, linguistics, mathematics, psychology, sociology, theatre, and Buddhist philosophy.
Applications will be evaluated by a committee comprised of Dr. Lea Alford, Eli Arnold, Dr. Kristen Clayton, Dr. James Goodenberger, Chamyre Hynson, Dr. Kathryn McClymond, Dr. Karen Schmeichel, and Dr. Justin Wise.
