The Undergraduate Research and Creative Work Program offers grants to support students engaged in research or creative work. Two different grants are available to students: Production and Presentation Grants.
Production grants are intended to support students by defraying the direct costs of conducting scholarly or creative work. Production grants can cover consumables, travel related to conducting research, or incentives for study participants. Costs associated with producing a final project related to your work (such as printing of posters, papers, etc) can be included.
Students are eligible to apply for 2 production grants per academic year, with the award totaling no more than $600. Production grant amounts range from $50-$600.
Presentation grants support the costs incurred by students traveling to present their work off-campus. Costs associated with preparing for your presentation (such as printing posters, arranging travel, conference registration fees, etc) can be included. Students who have costs associated with submitting work for professional publication are welcome to use presentation grant funding for this expense.
Students are eligible to apply for 1 presentation grant per academic year, with the award totaling no more than $750.00.
**Please note: students applying for projects related to the Fine Arts should apply for a production grant if they are coordinating a performance or display. Fine Arts students should only apply for a presentation grant if they will be showcasing their work off-campus.
