Not only are student research job opportunities available, but RIC also offers fellowships and student research awards!
Anne and Bob DeStefano Fund for Undergraduate Research
This fund was established in 2008 by Anne '66 and Bob DeStefano to provide funding for student undergraduate research. Students are selected by a faculty committee on the basis of the academic merit of faculty/student proposals. In 2011, the DeStefanos agreed to increase their endowment to support the entire undergraduate research program. In acknowledgement of their generosity, the fund is now referred to as The Anne and Bob DeStefano Undergraduate Research Program
Awards typically range from $50 to $500 and are made each semester. The award process is administered by the College Honors Program. Application information is available through the College Honors Program website at http://www.ric.edu/honors/shp.php.
