The Heidi Lynn Sculthorpe Scholars program supports students and faculty of all disciplines in pursuing their passions for marine and coastal issues through experiential research. The program provides grant opportunities for student researchers and faculty mentors to conduct projects of their own design that advance the Urban Coast Institute’s mission and Monmouth’s Strategic Plan. Each year, the program funds dozens of hands-on research positions that provide real-world experience to students while helping make a positive impact in coastal communities. Taking advantage Monmouth’s location a mile from the world’s greatest laboratory – the New Jersey coast – students can explore the region’s diverse ocean and coastal environments, including through journeys aboard the University’s three research vessels.
Monmouth University students and faculty can apply for:
Faculty Enrichment Grants for the enhancement of existing curriculum, new curriculum development, research and scholarship, and team-teaching opportunities.
Mini-Grants for conference fees, symposia, guest speaker honoraria, equipment and supplies, and other needs.
Student-Faculty Collaborative Summer Research Grants for projects either proposed by students with the support of a faculty mentor or proposed by a faculty member to enable students to conduct research with them.
