The Whitham Family Collaborative Scholarship Awards are designed to promote true cross-disciplinary collaborations between two or more Santa Clara University faculty members and their research students. While any University-wide cross-disciplinary collaboration is eligible, there will be a preference to fund projects that involve at least one faculty member of the research team from the Arts. There are two tracks for faculty applications. Details can be found here.
Undergraduate researchers are welcome to apply through our portal, the Single Portal for Undergraduate Research (SPUR).
By applying through a University-wide, single application portal with a common set of guidelines, research proposals will be evaluated for quality prior to consideration for specific grants and awards for which the student and research project may be eligible
