Dean's Undergraduate Research Grants

Our Undergraduate Research Grants encourage curiosity, creativity, risk-taking and scholarly investigation into a project or subject of interest relevant to the student’s major. So far over $150,000 has been awarded to support research that: 1) is interdisciplinary, 2) involves multiple students, and 3) draws on the expertise of a faculty mentor.
  • This individual will serve as the primary point of contact for the grant.
  • Please list all other team members. Include first name and last name as well as the major department of each.
  • In no more than 4 sentences, summarize your proposed project. If awarded, this text will be used for announcing your grant on our website.
  • In no more than 2 pages describe your project, particularly the connection between the project and the curriculum, the anticipated outcome of the project, and the value of the research/creative activity in the discipline. Submit your Project Narrative attachment in PDF format. (You may for example, create your document in Microsoft Word and save as a PDF before attaching.)
