Fall 2015 Wentz Semester Grants awarded to 26 undergraduates

Wed, October 07, 2015

Thanks to the generosity of the Lew Wentz Foundation, 26 Oklahoma State University undergraduates representing a range of disciplines will each receive a $750 Fall 2015 Wentz Semester Research Grant to conduct an original research project under the guidance of an OSU faculty member.

These students submitted research proposals, which underwent a rigorous blind review process by the Wentz Research Committee and were scored on the basis of originality and creativity among other technical and methodological considerations.

The Spring 2016 Wentz Semester Research Grant application is open now!  Students in all majors are encouraged to apply.  The deadline to submit proposals is January 15, 2016.
