Other Federal and State Grants for Students Conducting Undergraduate Research
There are numerous national and state grants for students wanting to conduct undergraduate research projects. The CRC is willing to assist students in locating these opportunities; however, it is the responsibility of the student and faculty mentor to write and submit the grant. It is highly recommended that students start the grant-writing process early, as the submission deadlines vary by grant.
