Judy (Judith) Hinton Research Fund (JHR)

Goal: To support undergraduate women veterans within the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences (CLAS) to travel to either international or domestic conferences and meetings to present their research, to visit a research/field site to conduct research, or to visit an expert in the field to learn a new technique/approach. Special preference will be given to students studying pre-education or pre-nursing. 

Application Due Date: Funds will be available on a rolling basis as funds remain available

Fund Description: The undergraduate student must present their work through official channels at the meeting/conference (e.g., poster, oral presentation, contribution to an art exhibit) or learn new skills that will enhance their research at a new location, or gain critical data for their research at adistant location. All approaches should involve development of critical networking skills in the process of enhancing their research through travel opportunities.

Student Engagement: This fund serves to benefit CLAS undergraduate women veterans by supporting them to travel to present their research, to gain new skills, or to collect critical data.
