Tomorrow’s leaders are today’s undergraduate students. By participating in exciting original scholarship and research with a faculty member, a Rollins student will be challenged and energized. They will learn how to think critically, participate in real-world problem-solving, expand their academic interests outside of the classroom and collaborate in the creation of new knowledge.
Graduate schools, professional schools and business leaders all look for graduates who have participated in a collaborative project during their undergraduate years. Most schools ensure that students get this experience collaborating with other students in the classroom. The difference at Rollins is that this collaboration is with a member of the faculty and the work is high-level original scholarship. Many of the students who participate in this program graduate from Rollins having already published an article in an academic journal.
Participating in the Student-Faculty Collaborative Scholarship Program also enhances a students’ position when applying for competitive scholarships
, fellowships, graduate programs or employment opportunities. Many of the students who have participated in this program have gone on to win prestigious national scholarships or fellowships
