Program Description:
The Wang Center Research Grant Program is designed to support students, faculty, and faculty-student teams that seek to conduct original research in an international setting. Consideration is also given to proposals seeking to conduct research within the United States on topics that underscore the connection of the local and the global on issues of diversity, social justice and sustainability. Proposals are reviewed by the Global Education Committee for recommendation to the Executive Director of the Wang Center for final approval by the Provost. All awards are administered through the Wang Center.

All grants awarded in spring are for activities to be carried out between June 1st and May 31st of the upcoming academic year. Seniors graduating in December must complete their projects by the end of the January following their graduation. Students graduating before the award year are not eligible. Grant applicants must consult the Student International Travel to Countries with Travel Advisories. Per policy guidelines, PLU will not fund travel to high risk areas (https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/traveladvisories.html/).

Proposals are accepted from full-time PLU undergraduates and graduate students for advanced research and experiential learning in a global context. The grant monies are available for projects that contribute to the individual’s educational experience in ways not available through traditional study away programs. These grants are intended to support supplementary travel expenses for capstone research, independent internships, service learning projects, or other independent projects. The grants may not be used to supplement the cost of traditional study away expenses or for projects and internships that earn academic credit. Up to four student grants are awarded annually for amounts up to $2500.
