The Kenyon/OSU program provides opportunities for students to work in close collaboration with faculty mentors from the Ohio State University as full participants in the processes of executing a research project and preparing results for presentation in a public forum. This program is funded by Kenyon College and the Ohio State University. It is open to students working with faculty members in biostatistics, epidemiology and statistics.
The team conducts their research over an 8 to 10 week period in the summer, at the end of which the student member of the team submits an abstract of approximately 200 words describing the project and results. Additionally, Kenyon/OSU scholars present their results at a research poster session during Family Weekend in October.
The current fellowship award is $4,000 per student plus provision for housing in Columbus.
Students not requiring housing are not eligible for additional remuneration.
Each student will be able to purchase up to $500 in materials, supplies, and/or equipment to support the research project. All expenses must be approved by the faculty mentor and submitted with original invoice or receipt to Andrea Lechleitner (email@example.com) no later than the last day of October following the summer project. Funding for conference travel may be requested through the Provost’s Student Research Grant program.
A complete proposal consists of
The student member of the research team is responsible for completing parts 1, 2, 3, and 5 while the faculty mentor completes part 4 and submits it directly. Awards will be announced on or before January 22, 2018. Notification will be by email, copying the faculty mentor. A student may not accept this award if he or she is
