Research partnership grant
Research Partnership Grants are intended to encourage freshmen and sophomores to become involved in research or scholarly activities in disciplines that evoke their interest. Research Partnership Grant awardees should work approximately 6 to 10 hours weekly during a semester. (Summer activities are flexible.)
The goal of the program is to make freshmen and sophomore students aware of some important aspects of the research and/or scholarly activities professors pursue, and to help prepare students for more advanced research and scholarly activities as they pursue a major.

Important information for funding and scholarship applicants
If you filed the FAFSA and are receiving financial aid (for example: Direct Loans, Pell Promise grants, 21st Century Scholars Covenant), and you receive one of the Hutton Honors College's grants or scholarships, your award from the Hutton Honors College may not be paid-out in the form of cash funds (i.e., as money paid into your Bursar account), but instead, may be used by IU's Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) to reduce your student/parent loan burden or reduce your federal/state grant by the amount awarded to you by the HHC.
