Fulbright Scholar Table – 2020
Faculty-Student Research Award
To encourage and promote student involvement in research scholarship, an award is given to faculty members and Ramapo students who have done research in close collaboration. The outcome of the scholarship should have been juried or refereed outside the institution and should have resulted in conference presentation, publication or exhibition. The student(s) should have made a significant contribution to the project, not merely providing help for routine tasks. The award is presented to one outstanding student researcher in each school at the annual Honors Convocation.
For awards available through the Office of the Provost, students must have a grade point average of 3.50 or higher and 24 Ramapo credits. Students must submit an application form, essay, and letter of recommendation from a faculty member or employer. The application form is available in the Provost’s Office, Room 101 of the Birch Mansion. For additional information please visit the Admissions website
