The Dean of the College has a small budget 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. The proposal should explain the nature of the research, the steps involved in completing the research project, and the grant sources that have already been petitioned. Questions about the Dean's Discretionary Fund can be directed to Barbara Sardy.
