Dean's Discretionary Grants

Apply for a dean's discretionary grant.

The Dean of the College will consider requests to fund undergraduate research projects that fall outside the boundaries of other research award programs. Students will normally have exhausted all other University grant sources before seeking support from the Dean. Special requests of all sorts are considered, but projects that incorporate an international or global component are especially encouraged.

Students who wish to request a discretionary grant should submit an application on UFunds to include a short proposal that explains the nature of the research, the steps involved in completing the research project, and the grant sources that have already been petitioned. The primary contact for queries about the application process should be directed to Barbara Sardy.
