Meet the Future of Research

On February 22, 2019, the Office of Sponsored Research and Scholarly Activity (OSRSA) celebrated Life University students’ achievement in research as RISE Scholarship and Funded Project recipients. “Meet the Future of Research” provided an provided opportunity for the Life University community to learn about the student projects through oral presentations and a question-and-answer session.

Life University is committed to encouraging and providing support for students to explore their ideas. 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 advisor on an evidence‐based research, education, service, entrepreneurial or creative project. The Funded Projects Award provides small-scale funding for students to carry out their work or to travel and present their projects at conferences and workshops or other gatherings.

OSRSA would like to thank all faculty, staff and students that supported and attended the event. If you would like to learn more about how to become a RISE or Funded Projects Scholar, please contact or call our office at 770-426-2769.
