Undergraduate Research Grants

The College of the Sciences continues to put collaboration between students and faculty at the center of undergraduate education. The College of the Sciences Undergraduate Research Grants Program allows students to propose and conduct a research project in conjunction with a faculty mentor. Faculty mentors may sponsor three student proposals per year. Students may submit one proposal per year.

Due Date for submission: First Friday in February at 5:00 PM in the Dean's Office.

(Additional opportunities for undergraduate research and funding are available through the Science Honors Research Program and the Office of Undergraduate Research.)
