Grua/O'Connell Research Award
Each fall, the Student Fellowships Committee makes approximately a dozen awards of up to $2,000, each supported by an endowed fund established in 2007 by Peter Grua ’76 and Mary O’Connell ’76. These awards support faculty-mentored student research in all disciplines.
Grua/O’Connell Research Awards can be used in conjunction with other sources of funding from the College (e.g., a College-awarded fellowship) or external sources (e.g., a faculty grant); however, preference will be given to applicants without other sources of funding. Normally, these awards will not exceed $2,000, and the College anticipates making 15 awards during the fall 2020 selection process.
