Science Enhancement Funds

Sue and Roger Kirby Science Enhancement Fund
Do you have an awesome idea for a research project? Maybe you want to take your students on a scientific adventure, or learn something new about the world of science through hands-on activities! Whatever your reason, the Sue and Roger Kirby Science Enhancement Fund is a way to make this passion happen.

This fund finances research projects (minimum grant of $200 and maximum grant of $1000), proposed by students or teachers. Be ready with a concrete outline, including a title, a brief description of the project, 1-3 goals, and a research method. Students should have the endorsement of a teacher before applying.


Todd Francis Creative Research Scholarship Awards
The Todd Francis Creative Research Scholarship Awards were initiated in 1991 as a memorial to Todd Francis's passion in science, language, and the humanities. Over 11 years, 80 projects have been funded, involving over 200 students and 27 faculty members. Support will be provided for projects that stimulate creativity, and involve actions that benefit society. 

Students are encouraged to think about a topic, do preliminary research, and develop a budget (maximum $200). The proposal will be discussed with the student's faculty advisor, who will make some changes and send the form to the selection committee!
