AASP UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH GRANT APPLICATION GUIDELINES:

The AASP Undergraduate Research Grant is intended to encourage academic collaboration and mentorship between an AASP adjunct (part-time) faculty member and a student minoring in Asian American Studies at Hunter. Projects should be semester-long and can be discipline-specific or interdisciplinary, including both traditional research or creative projects. Each year, the Committee will recommend awards up to $1,000 for each faculty-student "team," who will then divide the grant award between them. Note: the AASP adjunct faculty member must have agreed in advance to this research project; the committee will not accept applications where the faculty member has not agreed to work with the student in question. Questions? Please email the AASP Director!

  • Must be an AASP minor and have completed at least 6 credits (2 classes) of AASP course work with a minimum grade of B+ in each course;
  • Must be a full-time matriculated student with an overall GPA of 3.0, with no outstanding INC grades;
  • Transfer students are eligible and encouraged to apply;
  • The adjunct (part-time) AASP faculty member must have taught in the AASP for at least two consecutive semesters.

APPLICATION MATERIALS:

  • Two-page research proposal co-authored by the student and their faculty research mentor that outlines: 
  • 1) Title and one-paragraph description of research project;

ABOUT THE AASP, THE HUNTER CORE, AND CUNYFIRST

MOST currently offered AASP courses satisfy the GER Pluralism & Diversity requirement as well as the new College Option that is part of Pathways. However, for students looking at the Schedule of Classes on CUNYfirst, there will be no mention of Pluralism & Diversity: courses will say that they satisfy either "College Option" or "Regular Liberal Arts." If you were an incoming student in Fall '13, you take courses under the so-called Hunter Core, but if you entered Hunter before fall '13, you still need to satisfy the old P&D that's part of the GER. All currently offered AASP courses will meet at least one of those requirements, so please visit our course listings OR email AASP Director Jennifer Hayashida for more information.

We know: it's confusing, so if you have questions, just email the AASP Program Director!
