The Whitaker Center facilitates student research by providing assistance through summer research scholarships, research proposal development, selection of faculty supervisors, and the IRB approval process. In addition, the Center assists students and their supervisors in the publication and dissemination of the research results. We provide leadership in the development of undergraduate research protocols that can be duplicated within the university and other post secondary institutions.
FGCU STEM Summer Scholarship applications for 2016 will be available in January.
