UTM Undergraduate Research Grant

UTM Undergraduate Research Grants are intended to assist eligible undergraduate students to develop and improve research skills. Grants are provided for student-initiated research projects, which are related to their degree programs and are supervised by UTM faculty members. The project may be conducted within the context of an independent study course, but need not be.

A student may apply for funds to support additional research to turn a course essay or course work into a presentation at a conference or a publication (e.g., a journal article). Grant expenses may include but are not limited to funds for: lab supplies and consumables; other materials needed for research; travel to archives or other research-related field work travel; costs associated with formal surveys; travel to and fees for an academic conference where the student will present research; costs of printing a poster for presentation at a conference.
