Social Justice SIP Stipend

The Social Justice SIP Research Stipend provides students working on their Senior Integrated Project relating to social justice with a $2000 stipend that helps students alleviate the costs of doing their research over the summer months. The Stipend is paid out in two payments: $1500 in June and $500 at the end of August. The second payment of $500 is contingent on the completion of all requirements.
