Every semester, the School of Human Evolution and Social Change grants research award(s) in the amount of $1,000 to select undergraduate students in its majors. The awards allow students to explore a topic close to their interests, giving them unique experience for graduate school in any field in addition to building and strengthening their resumes. Students are awarded a stipend for 9 hours of supervised study each week (of the semester that they have been awarded) to carry out their own research.

Research projects should be well thought out and align with the student's research interests. These projects must be overseen by an ASU faculty member; however, independent research projects are desirable. Ideally, the faculty supervisor should be within the School of Human Evolution and Social Change because the money for these awards is generated by our faculty's research initiatives. If a student has a primary faculty advisor s/he would like to work with outside the school, we will accept those applications. However, we suggest that the student should minimally arrange for co-supervision with someone who is associated faculty within our school, in addition to their other faculty advisor.
