Support Student Research
The critical role of student research is recognized in the Ball State University mission statement:
“We engage students in educational, research, and creative endeavors that empower our graduates to have fulfilling careers and meaningful lives enriched by lifelong learning and service, while we enhance the economic, environmental, and social vitality of our community, our state, and our world.”
We ask you to join us in supporting Ball State’s research efforts, such as the Teacher-Scholar Program. In this program, research mentors collaborate with undergraduate student researchers from all departments, majors, and academic disciplines. These students receive a $750 stipend, transferable skills, and the opportunity to make meaningful discoveries.
In the program’s inaugural year, research teams of first- and second-year undergraduate students and their research mentors have worked on a number of issues that are important to understanding the issues of our times, including:
- The history of Hoosier civil rights
- Adolescent anxiety and depression
- Conquering COVID in the classroom
They have also made advancements in our understanding of topics like rRNA processing, porous structures at an atomic level, and the medieval Princess Ermengarde.
Your contribution will ensure student researchers in every college have resources to advance the Ball State Mission “to enhance the economic, environmental, and social vitality of our community, our state, and our world.”
