Creative students explore meaningful topics. The Academic Partners Program supports academic faithfulness through one-on-one mentoring, development of an academic or fine arts project, and a capstone presentation opportunity celebrated during “Works of Our Hands Week.”
Past projects have included an investigation of the use of experimental therapies in the Ebola outbreak, the design of a propeller drive train for Geneva′s Solar Splash competition boat, research on the genetic determinants of anxiety in mice, a biography of David Metheny, a history of the Bloomington, IN Reformed Presbyterian congregation, and More Than Minds: Relearning Language through Poetry.
Requirements for Consideration
Students with a GPA of 3.60 or higher will be invited to apply mid-semester in the fall and spring for the following semester. In order to apply, students must submit a research proposal as well as a recommendation letter from the faculty member with whom they intend to partner for the program.
