The Centralia College Foundation unanimously approved $10,000 to fund student research projects in 2017. The funds can be used to complete Capstone Projects across all disciplines. Up to $500 may be available for an individual or $2,500 for a group.
This is the fifth year of the Capstone Projects at the college, and the third year the foundation has offered financial support to complete the high-profile projects.
“The foundation is excited to assist students by providing a source of funding to encourage them with their projects,” said Julia Johnson, director of alumni and donor relations. “This funding also sets Centralia College apart from other community colleges, as no other community college in the state has such opportunities for students to participate in research-related projects.”
The foundation will host the Capstone Project Presentation Day on June 9, when students will present their work to the foundation and community.
As part of the application, students need to identify a faculty mentor, create a budget, and describe their project and its benefit to the college or community. Applications will be accepted from March 13-April 13. Awards will be announced April 17. Interested students are asked to see a faculty member for an application and addition project details.
