Provost’s Research Grant

The Office of the Provost is sponsoring a number of undergraduate research projects during the current academic year. Awards up to a maximum of $1,000 are provided to support student research such as purchase of supplies, software, reference books, or travel to research sites and to present work at professional meetings. Team research is also supported and, in appropriate cases, the award amount is larger than the single-student maximum. Students who wish to be considered should first discuss possible topics with their faculty sponsor. For more information, please visit: http://www.northeastern.edu/undergraduateresearch/

Student Financial Services

Northeastern’s Admissions Office offers a wide range of scholarships to reward the outstanding achievements of incoming freshman students. For best consideration for all of Northeastern’s scholarships, you should apply for admission in advance of the January 15 deadline date. Many scholarships require the signing of a contract of understanding, which is included with the offer of financial assistance. Most full tuition scholarships (including the Trustees, Torch, BPHS, BHA, and Balfour Scholarships) require a minimum of 100 hours of community service each year. The Center of Community Service at Northeastern provides students with the tools and resources necessary to achieve success in this program.
