Research Grants

Get money for your academic projects!

The Research Grant Program is designed to provide financial support for student (graduate and undergraduate) research, projects, and other scholarly endeavors in all academic disciplines. Students, with the supervision of a professor, may apply for funds to complete an educational project. Examples include laboratory experiments, senior projects, field studies, printing of thesis, subscription to related journals, and material to create artwork.

Undergraduate student disciplines for Research Grant funds can be used to cover project related software, equipment, materials, supplies, travel, data collection and analysis, and other project related expenses and up to one half of the grant can be used as student assistant funds. Funds may not be used for faculty compensation, travel and/or to purchase food.

Funds will not be allocated for salaries, meals, symposium, manuscript presentations, or travel.
