Research Support Grant (RSG) - This grant provides students from all disciplines with the funds necessary to conduct research or creative projects during the academic year both on and off campus (including summer terms). Awards will be up to $2,000 and are meant to cover research travel costs, living expenses incurred during academic breaks (i.e., winter break and summer terms, NOT regular semester living expenses), and materials or other ancillary costs. We hope that this competition will both broaden and deepen the types of research being conducted by undergraduate students on campus, and that the recipients are able to use this opportunity as a way of engaging with their fields.
For details and eligibility requirements please visit: http://go.illinois.edu/OUR_RSG
The deadline for applications is October 14, 2022 at 11:59 p.m.
Conference Travel Grant (CTG) - We offer the CTG to subsidize the costs assosicated with students presenting their research posters, papers, or creative works at in-person and virtual professional conferences. Eligible students can apply for grants of up to $400 that are reviewed on a rolling basis (until budgeted funds are exhausted). Please note, the Office of Undergraduate Research does not provide funds for conference attendance only; grants are meant for students who will present their work.
Travel during COVID-19 pandemic must be in accordance with University and State of Illinois guidelines.
