Research Funding

Willard North Research Awards for Graduate Students
This award is named in honor of Dr. "Will" North who devoted many years to fostering research activities at University of Central Missouri. The awards are supported by the Willard North Endowment Fund which is part of the University of Central Missouri Foundation. The purpose of these awards is to promote and encourage the highest levels of graduate research and scholarly investigation. Dr. North was a proponent of sound research design, appropriate statistical techniques, and proper interpretation of results. Willard North Research awards are for students of all disciplines. Because of Dr. North's professional involvement in teaching psychology and counselor education, students in those academic disciplines are especially encouraged to apply. Proposed projects are usually considered as joint student/faculty research or student thesis development. Information about how to apply is available on the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research Integrity {you can link this to internal.cfm?print=yes&)
