Call for Applications: Funding Opportunities to Support Undergraduate Research - Small Grants and Travel
Are you mentoring a student conducting undergraduate research? If you are, consider taking advantage of two programs offered by the Undergraduate Research Office: the Small Grants Program and the Undergraduate Travel Program. Applications for both programs are currently being accepted.
The deadline for the fall round of the Small Grants Program is Wednesday, October 17, for student input; faculty members have until Friday, October 19, to complete the mentor portion of the online application. This program provides support for students to conduct a project exploring something within or outside their major. The money can cover travel or supplies needed to carry out the project but is not intended for student salary or for students to present their research at a conference. You can read more about this program and review the application on the Undergraduate Research Office website.
Applications for the Undergraduate Travel Program are also being accepted. If you have a student accepted to present at a meeting or conference, display artwork at a juried exhibit, or other similar activity, funding is available to help cover students' expenses to attend meetings, conferences, and art shows. There is no deadline for this program, and applications are reviewed within two weeks of submission. You can access an online travel application on the Undergraduate Research Office website.
A flier with information and deadlines for all 2018–2019 undergraduate research programs is available on the Undergraduate Research website on the lower right side under “What's New.” More information about undergraduate research funding opportunities can be found on the Programs tab at the top of the UR website.
