The Arthur J. Bosch Endowment for Student Research 

The Arthur J. Bosch Endowment for Student Research was established in 2013 to make possible undergraduate summer research opportunities for Central students across many academic disciplines. The endowment provides a stipend and housing for students allowing them to focus on a summer research project. Each Bosch Scholar is paired with a Central faculty member who works closely with the student to advance their research projects.

The Ed Willis Psychology travel fund assists students studying psychology to attend and present their work at the national and/or regional psychological conferences. Funding is available to students majoring or minoring in psychology and who are in good academic standing. The funds assist students with conference fees, travel and/or lodging expenses associated with national or regional conferences.


Bette Brunsting Student Project Fund

The Bette Brunsting Student Project Fund assists students with out of classroom experiences. Opportunities previously funded include cultural travel experiences for students, attendance at conferences and funds to present research at conferences and meetings.
