MiM Student Research

Every year MU makes over $130,000 available to support student and student-faculty research or creative work. These funds create opportunities for students to develop the skills necessary for professional success after graduation. Many of the funds are open to all students, while others are restricted to specific majors.

Information on specific funding programs including applications forms, funding guidelines, eligibility requirements, and program specific contact information can be found by following the links below. Though some of the awards are listed as "scholarships" they all support programs where research or creative activity is emphasized. If you are searching for Faculty Grants, that information can be found here.

The links below provide information on some funding opportunities for undergraduate research.  It is also advisable that you talk to your faculty advisor about research opportunities that may be specific to your department.  If you have questions regarding any of these funding opportunities, please do not hesitate to contact by email Rene Munoz or by phone at 717.871.4457.
