Undergraduate Research Fund

The Undergraduate Research Fund fosters research experience at the undergraduate level by providing students with an opportunity to develop a research project of their own, for which there is no other available funding.

The Fund is to be used for research initiated by students, related to their degree, and supervised by a faculty member either through a regular course, an independent study, a research essay, or other academic project. The research must be completed within a year of funding or before graduation, whichever comes first. All students granted funding are required to submit a short summary of research findings.
