March 1, 2018
  • Scholarship Description
  • The University of Colorado Boulder encourages interest in museum activities by providing support for selected students in museum-related studies, including life sciences, earth sciences, history, anthropology and museum-based education and outreach. The Museum Student Research Award Program is designed to award outstanding scholastic students with up to $1,200 for a 12-month period. Students must pursue research in a related natural history or humanities department.

    Applicants are strongly encouraged to consult with a curator of the appropriate Museum section: anthropology, botany, entomology, paleontology, zoology, museum & field studies, or public museum if they have any questions on the appropriateness of their project. Applications must include a curriculum vitae, copy of a transcript, two letters of recommendation, a detailed budget, and a narrative description of the project (not to exceed three double-spaced pages). Because preference is given to projects focusing on museum and field related studies, students are strongly encouraged to address in their narrative how their study is museum-related, benefits the museum committee, or involves research that reflects the types of studies conducted by museum researchers.

    Applicants must provide a hard copy of their proposed project's budget and are strongly encouraged to use the following Excel worksheet to document their budget. The Excel worksheet contains instructions and samples to simplify the process.

    For more details and to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
