Bank of America Research Scholars​​​​

Bank of America Research Scholars are awarded stipends from the Bank of America Research Scholar​s Fund to select JU Davis graduate students.  These students work collaboratively with a faculty member on specific, meaningful research that would be presented at a national conference and/or published in an internationally recognized scholarly journal.

The Bank of America Research Scholars assist or in some cases attempt to create new knowledge while being mentored by a sponsoring JU Davis faculty member. Students complete literary searches and reviews, may data collection, do analytics and contribute written pieces for inclusion in the final work. This provides an educational experience well beyond the classroom and creates the close mentoring relationship between professor and student that is valued at the best liberal arts institutions.

The selection process is designed to attract and recognize talented students by providing them with an exceptional opportunity and resume building experience.

Requirements

  • 3.0 minimum GPA in a business graduate program
  • A U.S. resident or eligible to work in the United States
