New funding opportunity for UMW student research
The University of Mary Washington is offering a new funding opportunity for students to advance projects and perform original research.
Called the “UMW Community Outreach Initiative” and run through the Advancement Office, the project “is a grassroots campaign allowing students, in need of funding, a chance to be featured on the UMW website.”
Students can submit an application with their ideas to a committee consisting of UMW Alumni and Advancement staff who will select four qualifying applicants.
The Advancement Office, in conjunction with the selected student or group, will then promote the students and encourage giving from alumni, parents, friends and current students. Promotion for each project ends when it is fully funded or at the campaign closes.
