Undergraduate Research Grants

(2016-2017 awardee: Andres Zumba)

Undergraduate students are encouraged to apply for the Undergraduate Research Grant. These grants provide up to $1,000 in financial support to undergraduate students who work closely with a faculty member to conduct research, engage in field studies, create projects in their discipline, or participate in similar scholarly/creative activities. Students may either design their own project or work on a professor s project. Either way, students must work closely with a faculty mentor. Students are encouraged to contact faculty in preparation for making a proposal.

To be eligible, a student must:

  • be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student with at least two semesters remaining before they will earn their degree
  • be in good academic standing
  • show substantial initiative in the project
  • have a faculty mentor who is willing to work with the student

Faculty mentors must:

  • be full-time faculty
  • be willing to work closely with the undergraduate student on the project
  • have knowledge/expertise in the area of project to be completed
  • demonstrate ability to effectively mentor an undergraduate student

The application will be due late spring. Go to this link for additional information including application forms and guidelines.
