Students from all disciplines are eligible to apply for a grant. Applicants may request up to $1,250 to cover approved project expenses. Grant recipients receive a $2,000 tuition grant for the summer term and must be enrolled for at least one credit hour during the summer.

“Students use their grants to generate new knowledge or creative works in their discipline, but that experience also encourages them to gain new skills and confidence and to explore potential careers,” said Professor Jane Greer, who directs the program. “Many of our past grant recipients have said conducting research with a faculty mentor has been a highlight of their undergraduate experience.”

Students interested in applying for a grant are encouraged to develop their ideas and discuss it with potential faculty mentors in their academic departments, Greer added.
