Description/Abstract

An oft-cited barrier preventing faculty from integrating a more rigorous research experience into their classroom curriculum is a lack of time and resources when faced with numerous competing priorities. In an effort to ease this process, FSU launched the Graduate Research Consultant (GRC) Program modeled after a similar program at UNC-Chapel Hill. The program provides funding ($750) for an upper-division graduate student to serve as a student research mentor for course-based research projects. Though still in pilot-phase (launched spring 2013), our assessment suggests the GRC program provides a low-cost way to scale undergraduate research through integration into the curriculum.
