Summer Collaborative Grant

We are now accepting applications for Summer 2022! The application deadline is Janurary 30,2023. 

The Office of Undergraduate Research & Scholars has committed to funding a total of 13 student-faculty collaborative teams to work on a wide range of research and creative work projects. These funds are available to ALL disciplines and are distinct from traditional departmental lines held by each department. OURS recognizes the importance of centering Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in our on-campus research efforts; as a result, we will always prioritize projects that emphasize DEI work.

In alignment with our mission as Liberal Arts & Sciences institutions, we are also pleased to welcome applications for Interdisciplinary Team research projects, where faculty from two different disciplines explore an interdisciplinary topic while supporting two student collaborators. If you are interested in mentoring a student collaborator over Summer 2023 and have a well-designed project, please consider applying.  Please click here to view the prompts and submit your proposal.

All grants provide $6000 funding for a stipend for a full-time student collaborator (40 hours per week for 10 weeks). After projects are approved, students may also apply for support through the UR Grant Program.  Faculty mentors are eligible to apply for the faculty stipend of $1,500.
