Funding For Research
Undergraduate Scholars Grant
The Undergraduate Scholars Grant is available to full-time UCM students who wish to undertake advanced research or creative projects. Grants help to compensate for expenses incurred while students are engaged in research and creative activities. Expenditures can include supplies, materials, technology, and equipment, among other things. Undergraduate Research offers grants to students in good academic standing whose projects demonstrate scholarly merit and contribute to educational enrichment.
All projects must be sponsored by a full-time teacher-scholar who is housed in one of the four academic colleges. While individual grant amounts may vary, a single Scholars Grant typically does not exceed $750.00. Grant applicants may also receive partial funding. All decisions are contingent upon availability of funds. Applications are considered on a rolling basis throughout the academic year. Students will be notified within 1-2 business weeks of submitting an application. Interested students are referred to the grant application for further details regarding the application process.
Grant recipients are strongly encouraged to participate in the annual Scholars Symposium and to present the results of their work in appropriate academic venues.
