Partners in Scholarship (PinS)

What is PinS?

Partners in Scholarship (PinS) provides a unique opportunity for students to collaborate on a project with a faculty member. Students should work with the faculty partner to develop a detailed project plan. While most partnerships involve one-to-one work with a faculty member, students can work with multiple faculty members or with other students. If working with other students, each student must submit an application stating his/her personal contribution to the project and is eligible to receive $1,500. All projects must be finished by June 1st of the academic year/the end of the fiscal year. The URC cannot fund tuition, internships, service learning, classes, or lessons. Funding may be considered for research-related travel. For more questions, contact

FALL DEADLINE: All applications are due by Wednesday, October 5, 2022, at 11:59 PM MDT.
