- All Scholars Day
All Scholars Day is a campus-wide celebration of scholarship at Marietta College. All students, faculty, and staff are expected to participate in ASD — it is such an important day that no class meetings are held on ASD! ASD allows students to share their research, creative projects, and senior capstone projects with the Marietta College Community. Students give talks, poster presentations, demonstrations, and performances for audiences across disciplines, demonstrating the importance of the liberal arts at Marietta College.
- Investigative Studies Summer Fellowships
The goal of the Student Summer Fellowship Program is to encourage undergraduate student-faculty collaboration in investigative studies. Summer Fellowships are designed to support students for a six-week period so that students may work with a faculty member on a project of mutual interest.
- Investigative Studies Travel and Supply Grants
Travel and Supply grants are available to help students both with the cost of traveling to present their work or learn at academic conferences and virtual events and of consumable goods for their research projects.
- Investigative Studies Research Fellowships
The goal of the Student Research Fellowship Program is to encourage undergraduate student-faculty collaboration in investigative studies. Research Fellowships are designed to support students during the academic year so that they may work with a faculty member on a project of mutual interest.
