CRL RISE Scholarship Award
The CRL RISE Scholarships are designed to bring new students into the research and creative enterprise. Students are expected to identify a mentor and work with their mentor to write a proposal for a substantive independent research or creative project to be completed no later than by the end of the following spring semester. The scholarships will support student participation in the RISE to the IUPUI Challenge initiative, and successful completion of the sponsored project will qualify the student for the research portion of the RISE challenge. This is a faculty-mentored research experience for the duration of at least seven months (October 1 through April 30).
Five RISE to the IUPUI Challenge undergraduate research scholarships are awarded in the spring of each year. The $1,500 award is applied to the winning students’ bursar accounts. These scholarships have been made possible through the generous gift of Mr. Daniel Wilson and Dr. Kathryn J. Wilson, who served as the founding executive director of the IUPUI Center for Research and Learning.
The mentors will receive $500 for research supplies or equipment. Half of the student stipend is disbursed
