Student Grant Application for Research, Innovation, and Creative Projects:

The Undergraduate Research Office Student Grant Program provides funding to support general expenses associated with student research, innovation, and creative activities.

Awards are limited to $250 maximum for a single applicant, or $500 per project if 2 or more students are co-applying for the grant. The goal of this program is to support students with funding to advance their independent projects, and allow them to contribute to research activities on campus and to the general knowledge in their academic discipline. Funding must be used to directly impact the proposed project, with the expectation that students will make significant progress on the project, and grow as a professional through an educational and meaningful experience.

Eligible expenses include direct costs related to carrying out the proposed project, such as materials, supplies, facilities and instrument costs, accompanists, and participation/survey fees. Funding from this grant cannot be used to cover expenses such as travel costs; patent fees or associated costs of writing and filing for patents, copyrights, or trademarks; any type of salary, wage, stipend, or benefit for DSU students or employees; or to cover tuition or student fees.

This Grant program MAY NOT be used for travel. Please apply for a Travel Grant if you are requesting funds for travel of any type.
