This discussion will cover responsible research during a student’s first academic semester or first summer of research work. It will be held March 4th from 7pm - 9pm in the Euler Science Complex, room 118. This training is necessary for students doing research at Taylor University and fulfills the requirement of the RCR policy.
SRTP Student Summer Research Mini-Grants
To continue to provide educational experiences and to assist the research efforts of the School of Natural and Applied Science faculty, the Science Research Training Program (SRTP) will again be providing summer research mini-grants to employ students for the summer. Funding is provided through the Randall Endowed Research Fund.
Each grant will be for the amount of $3,444.80 to cover one student at $10.00 per hour and 320 hours of work (8 weeks full-time), including FICA costs (0.0765% of student wages). It is anticipated that a total of five grants will be awarded for this summer.
Your one to three page proposal must be emailed to Sue Gavin and your department chair by 8:00 a.m. on April 2, 2013.

The Office of Sponsored Programs at Taylor University is focused on supporting faculty research and scholarship. OSP assists faculty and staff with development and submission of proposals, administration of awarded sponsored agreements, administrative oversight of RCR training, and assists with sponsored agreement negotiation and acceptance.
The office is under Academic Affairs and the director reports to the Provost. Additionally, the Staff Accountant in the Business office works with the Sponsored Programs to maintain financial records and make timely requests for payments.
To assist faculty in Taylor's process, a reference guide has been developed.
If you are a faculty member seeking funding from federal, private foundations or industry contact the office or use the SPINplus search engine.
