Each fall and spring semester, the CHHS Research Committee accepts applications from faculty and students for research funding. While this type of "college level" funding is not unique to CHHS, it is not something provided by all colleges. Faculty is eligible for research scholarships for up to $4,000 each semester they apply, and students are eligible for up to $750. Faculty must obtain an endorsement from their Department Head, while students must have endorsement from a faculty mentor. Due to a limited budget, there is strong competition for these research scholarships. Thus, the CHHS Research Committee considers carefully each application and only awards those of the highest merit. Each person awarded a CHHS Research Scholarship is responsible for presenting the results of their study within 18 months either at the CHHS Research Showcase or the WKU Student Research Conference. These are held each spring during WKU's REACH Week.
