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 from $500-$1000, for mentored undergraduate scholarly/creative activities.

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, regardless of major. Specific details about this program can be found below.
