Life University offers research scholarships to students interested in making research an integral part of their educational experience.

Got an idea for a study or project that you’ve been trying to get started but need support for your work? The Research, Innovation, Service and Education (“RISE”) Scholarships provide opportunities for students to compete for $2,250 in scholarship funding while working under the mentorship of a Life University faculty or staff adviser on research or other evidence‐based education, service, entrepreneurial or creative project.

RISE scholarships are administered through the Office of Sponsored Research & Scholarly Activity (OSRSA).The program is open to full-time equivalent (FTE) students matriculating in degree programs in the College of Chiropractic (COC) and the College of Graduate and Undergraduate Studies(CGUS). Contingent upon the availability of funding, OSRSA will award a total of eight scholarships each quarter. Four of the scholarships will be under the CoC Track and four will be under the CGUS track. The scholarship award will be applied toward tuition for the quarter following application submission and approval. Scholarships are due Week 8 and are renewable each quarter pending satisfactory progress and availability of funds.
