Undergraduate Research Grants Program
The Undergraduate Research Grants program provides funding for undergraduate students from all disciplines interested in participating in independent research and creative projects in collaboration with FAU faculty. The research or creative activity conducted by the student generally takes diverse forms of directed research, such as independent study, work on an honors thesis or part of a larger ongoing study under the direct supervision of a faculty member, rather than work conducted to fulfill regular course or seminar requirements.
S tudent and Faculty Eligibility :
- Any full-time, continuing, undergraduate student at Florida Atlantic University
- GPA of 3.0 or higher
- Students may receive only one Undergraduate Research Grant every twelve months.
- Faculty mentors may receive no more than two grants per grant cycle for students they mentor. (Additional grants may be awarded if funds are available.)
All application materials should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 p.m. on February 15th and October 15th . Should these dates fall on a weekend day or holiday, the deadline will become the next business day.
Below we provide links to the grant application materials, as well as supplementary materials to assist you in completing the grant application.
A University-wide call for proposals will be distributed prior to the next deadline. All proposals will be reviewed by the Distinction through Discovery co-curriculum committee using the judging criteria presented in the application.
This program is part of our University’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) efforts at expanding a culture of undergraduate research and inquiry at FAU. For questions about this program and the QEP, please visit ouri.fau.edu or email email@example.com.
