Academic Resources

Marist encourages student involvement in research and scholarship as one of the most effective approaches to learning. Our faculty are dedicated to interactive learning and collaboration, and support student efforts to pursue research and creative projects. The College has established a fund to assist students in pursuing scholarly projects under the guidance of a faculty member.

Travel to conferences is provided only when the student has received an invitation by the conference organizers to present. Research grants will not exceed $400. Travel grants will rarely exceed $800.
