Ohio University offers workshop to help students apply for $6,000 award

Ohio University will offer two workshops to aid students applying for the Student Enhancement Awards, which provide up to $6,000 to support undergraduate, graduate and medical student research, scholarship and creative activities under the guidance of a faculty member or advisor.

Voinovich School students have a proven track record with this award. Master of Science in Environmental Studies candidate, Zebulon Martin, was among the 2016 recipients. Martin received the full $6,000 to investigate how precipitation events affect streams impacted by acid mine drainage.

Awards support direct project costs for current and ongoing research (e.g., supplies, materials, research-related travel, etc.) and will support conference travel for awardees to present their research findings. Funds will be available for one year.

The first University workshop will be offered on Wednesday, Nov. 16 from 12—1 p.m. with a repeat session offered Thursday, Nov. 17 from 4—5 p.m. Both workshops will take place in Alden Library, room 301U, and light refreshments will be provided. The workshops will provide students an opportunity to learn about the application process, receive helpful information and answer any questions. Students unable to attend the workshop may click here to view a recording of last year’s workshop.
