Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Mini-Grants

Undergraduate Education (UE) offers quarterly grants to enable undergraduates to participate in a faculty mentored research, creative or artistic projects of their own design. The grants also fund student travel to present their research at conferences. Proposals for these grants will be evaluated by a Review Committee, which is composed of at least three faculty members from differing disciplines and one UE staff member. The primary criteria upon which the grants will be awarded include: student GPA, proposal originality, student project-independence, clarity and feasibility of the proposal, and faculty mentor’s letter of recommendation.
