Undergraduate Research Grants Open New Opportunities for Students

Ashanti Hunter and Michelle Ho, inclusive early childhood and special education seniors in the School of Education, are engaged in research with Professor George Theoharis on the pipeline to educational leadership positions for women of color for building and school administrators and district administrators, respectively. They were among the spring 2021 recipients of undergraduate research grants from SOURCE, Syracuse University’s undergraduate research center that fosters and supports diverse undergraduate participation in faculty-guided scholarly research and creative inquiry.

Students interested in research funding for the spring 2022 semester are invited to apply for SOURCE and Honors Program grants this fall. This cycle includes application to the Spinoza Grant, which supports undergraduate research that explores philosophical aspects of issues within the sciences or other professional disciplines.

A required Intent to Apply form is due by Thursday, Sept. 30, and the complete application is due Thursday, Oct. 14. Learn more here.

“Since there is such limited literature on women of color as district leaders, having the ability to have more participants involved has enriched our findings,” Ho says. “Ashanti and I are so grateful to Kate and Odette at SOURCE for believing in our project.”
