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 their 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 university, be of at least sophomore standing, have completed at least one full-time semester at Moravian University, and have a QPA of at least 3.0. Students do NOT need to have completed a summer or semester SOAR fellowship to be eligible. Students with independent study projects, interdisciplinary projects, and Honors projects are welcome to apply.
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 university, an Emeritus faculty member of the university, or a current adjunct faculty member who has taught at the university for at least two full years.
