You are an original. You have personal questions that drive your passions, and you have a unique way to contribute to the world.
We created Randolph's Innovative Student Experience (RISE) Awards to give you the opportunity to pursue your unique passions. Every Randolph College student can apply to receive a grant of $2,000 for research, creative work, experiential learning, and other scholarly pursuits as a junior or senior.
In the past, students have used the RISE award to travel to singing competitions, purchase cancer cells for biological research, travel to the U.S. Virgin Islands to study water samples, buy graphic design software, study abroad in Europe, and more.
How will you use your RISE award?
You can use your RISE award for projects starting the summer before your junior year, and your award must be used before you graduate. If you transfer to Randolph as a junior, you must wait at least one semester before applying for RISE.
Not sure what to do with your RISE award? Talk with your faculty advisor and other professors to brainstorm ways that the RISE grant can help your education. Or, contact the Center for Student Research to talk about ideas.
The RISE Program is part of the Center for Student Research
