Funded Student Research

Research experience helps students develop skills that are important for equipping them to meet the challenges of living in a complex and competitive world. Much of the success of the research at Andrews can be attributed to our students who support our hardworking faculty each year. Student researchers are funded through Internal and External Grants.
