This article explores the various institutional strategies for encouraging undergraduate scholarship in the U.S. The student faculty grants, research stipends and scholarships require that the institution commit financial resources or commit resources to secure financial support from one or more outside agencies through creative grant writing. Suggestions pertaining to Lambda Pi Eta and internal internships probably require the least amount of institutional support. There are two proposed conditions for the research teams concept to be successful. First, there must be a commitment by all faculty to engage in research. Second, the faculty research interest must lend itself to collaborative research.
