The Carr Student Research Scholarship Program, initiated during the 1993-94 academic year, provides funds for undergraduate and graduate research projects conducted by ASU students in all fields of study. Student proposals are submitted to individual academic departments for screening. A campus-wide evaluation committee reviews the proposals and makes award recommendations to the president of the university. Students who successfully complete research projects and fulfill the other requirements of the program are designated as Carr Research Fellows.
