Research in Science & Health Fund
The Research in Science & Health Fund was established by Susan Fueshko Perry ‘86 to support any qualified undergraduate Hartwick student who is conducting research in the sciences, mathematics or a health-related field under the direct supervision of a Hartwick faculty or staff member.
The Research in Science & Health Fund award provides financial assistance to help cover conference fees, research supplies, travel expenses, and/or other valid expenses for the enhancement of the grantee’s professional and educational development. Student or faculty stipends or salaries are not allowed under this program. At the completion of the funded experience, the grant recipient will be required to submit a brief report to the Provost/VPAA on the funded experience and its impact on the recipient’s educational and professional pursuits.
The award recipient will be determined by the Evaluation Committee composed of the College’s three Academic Division Officers in consultation with the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs (or their designee).
"The Research in Science and Health Fund award allows students, like me, to get real-world, hands-on experience in fields they are passionate about. My research at Hartwick is providing me with a strong foundation that will impress potential employers as I seek internships and begin my career."

"The Research in Science and Health grant meant that I was able to purchase lab supplies that not only enhanced my senior thesis but also contributed to a growing research base on Charlotte Creek and its role in water quality in the Susquehanna and Chesapeake Bay."
