CAS Fall Undergraduate Research Grant Competition
Oct 4, 2009
Submission Deadline: Noon on October 16, 2009
Attention, History majors! The College of Arts and Sciences is once again offering grants for undergraduate students engaged in research under the direction of CAS faculty. The purpose of these grants is to support and promote the research efforts of our undergraduate students. The Undergraduate Research Grants are intended to fund undergraduate research that may be difficult or impossible to conduct without financial support. Students use the grant funds to purchase equipment and supplies, travel to professional conferences, pay participants, etc. -- whatever is necessary to conduct their study. Students can apply for up to $300 (plus 25% matching funds from their department) to fund their research.
Applications must have been reviewed and approved by the Department Chair prior to the College's deadline of noon on Friday, October 16. All approved applications must be turned in to the Dean's office by noon on the 16th.
In addition, students may apply for the Norman and Carmelita Teeter Undergraduate Research Award, regardless of whether they seek grant funds through the CAS Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Activity Grant Competition. The Teeter Awards are intended to recognize the most outstanding student projects for the academic year. One set of awards will be made each spring semester. However, students may apply for the awards in either fall or spring semester, and all will be entered into one pool. Each project that receives recognition will receive a monetary award.
Both competitions have the same eligibility requirements, obligations, and all students must complete the application form, which is attached in the blue box to the upper right.
