How To Fund Your Academic Research
We know that research and creative activities can be expensive. Here are steps to fund your work:
- Determine the full budget for your project.
- Talk to your research mentor about how to apply for funds within the department or through other entities (Sigma Xi, professional organizations, etc.)
- Apply for support from the Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities Fund for any remaining needs (process below).
- If there’s still a need, the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs offers a limited number of travel awards annually for undergraduate students who will present at conferences and other types of professional workshops. Learn more about this opportunity on the Academic Affairs website.
