Student Research Initiative Fellowships

Developed by Boise State students who wanted to expand research opportunities, the Student Research Initiative (SRI) fellowships provide money for both undergraduates and graduates to pursue their own research projects.

Unlike many funding opportunities, the SRI fellowships are open to all academic disciplines, and provides research opportunities to students who wouldn’t typically have the opportunity to engage in this kind of scholarship. Additionally, participants are given the opportunity to develop their presentation and publishing skills, while also engaging in interdisciplinary networking.

Since the launch of the program this past spring, students have done research on identifying isotopes in fossil bones, immigrant brides in Taiwan, chemical warfare agents in plants, and neoliberalism in universities. A collection of presentation abstracts and final reports can be found in ScholarWorks in the Student Research Initiatives collection.

Students who are interested in participating in the fellowship program can complete an application by October 25th. For complete information, please visit the Student Research Initiative website.
