Student research is an integral part of the Knox experience. The majority of students -- 85% -- pursue intensive research or creative projects that go beyond coursework.

Every year we award more than $350,000 in grants to individual students to support their research and creative projects. The Gerald and Carol Vovis Center for Research and Advanced Study is the hub for connecting students with research opportunities and the support they need to complete the work.

Three programs that support student research and creative work:

1. ASSET Program. A handful of promising juniors are chosen each year for assistance in preparing for careers in teaching or research. They also receive a sizeable stipend to pursue a project, which is typically completed the summer before senior year and often leads to College Honors.

2. Kemper Scholarship. Select first-year students receive stipends to pursue internships and experiential learning projects as well as scholarships that lead to careers in administration or business.

3. Richter Awards. Students can receive funding to engage in independent study or research under the supervision of a faculty member. Since 1995, the Paul K. and Evalyn Elizabeth Cook Richter Memorial Fund has provided more than $1.25 million for Knox student projects.
