Funding Your Academic-Year Research

The Office of Student Fellowships and Research supports funding opportunities for students engaging in academic-year research.

Fall Research Award (Grua/O'Connell)

Awards are made once in the fall and provide up to $2,500 to support student travel or expenses related to a student's research project, typically associated with an honors project or independent study.

Monthly Mini-Grants for Research 

Awards are made monthly and provide up to $1,000 to support academic-year research projects.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

Students find that immersing themselves in a particular research question gives them a chance to personalize their undergraduate experience and often serves as a springboard for independent study and honors projects. Fellowships also lead to students coauthoring papers with their faculty mentor or presenting their findings at professional meetings, experiences that are invaluable for those students considering graduate study. However your interests evolve, you will find that you draw upon the knowledge, skills, and experiences gained through these enhanced learning opportunities for years to come.
