Cancer Research Scholarships

The scholarships listed under the heading of research pertain to a wide range of academic disciplines and fields. Here you can find scholarship money for investigating and research into fields as disparate as human sexuality, edible fungi and the Russian Empire. If you have something you'd like to research then take a close look at these research scholarships and you may find things that surprise you. 

There are a few different educational pathways for students interested in research. Research and development management is one such program. Here you'll study how to manage projects, programs and organizations that are involved with basic or applied research. 

Another academic program available at the bachelor's degree level is research methodology. With a research methodology degree program, you'll study the various modes of design for research studies. You'll learn how to measure variables, analyze data and formulate models.

However, you needn't enroll in either of the above mentioned programs if you want to conduct research. Plenty of academic fields feature research as an integral component of the discipline. The biological sciences are a good example of such a field. In subjects such as biotechnology, genetics, molecular biology or entomology there are a host of opportunities for conducting research. However, keep in mind that in many of these fields conducting high-end research requires a master's or doctoral degree.

Other majors that feature a large amount of research include many of the humanities. Areas such as history, linguistics and comparative literature all rely of research to further the understanding and awareness of their subject matter. These research opportunities are available at both the bachelor's as well as the graduate level.

Other academic fields that rely heavily on research are the social sciences. Subjects such as anthropology, archeology, psychology and sociology use various modes of research to investigate and explore the issues and topics integral to their understanding.
