About the Program
The Division of Research and Academic Resources at Bay Path University encourages and supports undergraduate and graduate students in all majors and programs to undertake special research projects, scholarly activities, or creative works under the guidance of a faculty mentor. The faculty mentor, working one-on-one with the student, helps the student select and design the project, meets with the student on a regular basis and supports the student throughout the entire process. Projects are highlighted at Academic Achievement Day in the spring.
Grants are available to support various opportunities including short-term and long-term projects. Approved projects are provided financial support for the student to purchase supplies, materials, travel, and conference attendance. Certain grants such as the Summer Scholars Grant include student stipends. Projects carry academic credit on both the undergraduate and graduate level.
