NEW in 2020: Investigative Studies Research Fellowship
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. Student Research Fellowship recipients receive a taxable stipend of up to $1,000. The program is open to all undergraduate full-time students at Marietta College. Student application proposals will be evaluated on a competitive basis by members of the Honors & Investigative Studies Committee. While the quality of the projects is the most important criterion for funding, projects that have a strong chance of resulting in a publication, performance, or professional presentation will receive higher rankings by the Committee.
Up to three Research Fellowships of up to $1,000 each will be announced within two weeks after the application due date. The Fellowship is awarded in taxable hourly pay at $9.50 per hour.

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 provides students an opportunity 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 that span across disciplines, demonstrating the importance of the liberal arts at Marietta College.
