Provost's Undergraduate Research Fund

_MG_1595.jpg

The Provost's Undergraduate Research Fund supports research projects for students during the summer or for an academic semester; it also provides funding to students who are presenting their work at conferences. To apply for a Provost's URF, a student must have a faculty mentor who will oversee the student's research project. Grants can also provide helpful funding to students who are completing a senior thesis.  ALL disciplines are welcome, including all areas of the creative arts and the humanities.  For inspiration, check out a list of the current and past URF grantees, their Faculty Mentors, and their projects.

Amount of Award:
Amounts vary based on the Provost's URF committee's assessment. Summer awards often cover summer housing. Each type of award is capped at a particular amount (below, in parentheses)
