ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University students may now apply for fall 2021 Northern Edge Award undergraduate research funding.

The Northern Edge Award, started in spring 2020, is designed to augment existing funding sources for undergraduate scholarship at NSU. It is especially intended to aid student projects in under-represented disciplines and/or projects that may not be eligible/competitive for other funding opportunities on campus.

Faculty-mentored projects may receive up to $1,000 that can be used for traditional research expenses or discipline-specific costs such as travel for performances/exhibits.

For fall 2021, the application deadline is 5 p.m. Nov. 12. For more information, visit Northern Undergraduate Research or contact NSU Undergraduate Research Coordinator Dr. Andrew Russell at andrew.russell@northern.edu.
