Research Support Grant (RSG) and Proposal Writing for Undergraduate Researchers Workshop** 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.

The deadline for applications is October 15, 2020 at 11:59 p.m.
** In collaboration with the Writers Workshop, the Office of Undergraduate Research is offering a Proposal Writing for Undergraduate Researchers Workshop. We encourage all students interested in applying to the RSG to enroll in this free workshop. During this workshop, we will discuss the fundamentals of proposal writing, guiding students to formulate successful research projects and explain their research in a concise and compelling manner that is understandable to a general audience.
