USC Aiken Connections Program


Connections Award

The USC Aiken Center for Research Excellence sponsors the Connections  Award to promote the formation of research and creative interactions between our students and faculty.  The Connections program will provide funding, up to $500, for mentored undergraduate research and creative activities.

There will be up to five Connections awards in 2017.  Two of these will be awarded specifically to students in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.

All USC Aiken undergraduates who have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and who are interested in pursuing either research or creative activities with a USC Aiken faculty member are encouraged to apply.  Specific details about this program can be found below.
