External funding sources
Click here for a list of external funding sources for undergraduate research organized by discipline. This list was compiled from a search of websites and from chairs and directors responses to surveys. You should ask your faculty mentor or conduct your own search within your discipline to find additional funding opportunities. Please report any additions or corrections to the Office of Undergraduate Research so we can update the list. Note, deadlines are based on prior years and are listed by month, check the
program’s website for the most recent deadline information.
1. Student must be an undergraduate in good standing during the proposed work period.
2. Student led proposals must include a faculty mentor
3. Proposed funded activities can run anytime but must concluded by August 25, 2014.
Recipients are expected to generate a short summary of research actives and an assessment of the impact this had on their research output.
Proposals should be submitted electronically to John Borg, Chair of the Undergraduate Research Committee at John.Borg@mu.edu no later than Dec. 2nd, 2013. Proposal reviews will begin immediately thereafter.
