Through the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools, the Todd Francis Creative Research Scholarship Awards were initiated in 1991 as a memorial to Todd Francis’s passion in science, language, and the humanities. Over 11 years, 80 projects have been funded, involving over 200 students and 27 faculty members. Support will be provided for projects that stimulate creativity, and involve actions that benefit society.

Students are encouraged to think about a topic, do preliminary research, and develop a budget. The proposal will be discussed with the student’s faculty advisor, who will make some changes and send the form to the selection committee!
