The goal of the Student Opportunities for Academic Research (SOAR) program is to facilitate student research in collaboration with a faculty mentor. SOAR sponsors a Travel Grant to defray costs associated with student attendance at a scholarly meeting where the student will present his or her research. The SOAR Committee invites students and faculty to submit proposals for the Travel Grant.
At the time of the travel, a student must have full-time status at the college, be of at least sophomore standing, have completed at least one full-time semester at Moravian College, and have a QPA of at least 3.0.
At the time of the travel, the sponsoring faculty member must be a current full-time faculty with at least one year of teaching experience at the college, an Emeritus faculty member of the college, or a current adjunct faculty member who has taught at the college for at least two full years.
