Research & Travel Grant's Letter of Support

Letters of support from faculty advisors are required for OUR's undergraduate travel and research grant proposals. Funding for these grants is competitive, and faculty letters are a key component in our decision-making. Prepare ahead of time, so that your student can include it with their online application.

With that in mind, please follow these guidelines in preparing your letter:

  • Compose your letter on letterhead.
  • Describe how you have worked with the student on this project, and why you support this funding request. If you have other funding sources, please describe them.
  • Describe your knowledge of the student's research experience and abilities, and how this funding will contribute to their growth. 
  • If the student's project is part of your own, ongoing research project, please describe how this project fits in.

Once you are finished, please give the letter in PDF form to the student who will submit the letter alongside other required documentation when they complete the online application. 




Enter the name of the student for whom you are submitting a letter of support.
Please upload a letter of support on letterhead in .doc, .docx, or .pdf format.
Files must be less than 2 MB.
Allowed file types: pdf doc docx.
