Student Research Opportunities

Student Research at Millersville University

MiM Student Research

The University utilizes SPIN as the primary search tool for EXTERNAL funding. SPIN maintains a large database of public and private, national and international, funding opportunities. If you are looking for summer research opportunities, fellowships supporting creative projects, or funding for study abroad START HERE

Every year MU makes approximately $130,000 available to support student and student-faculty research or creative work. These funds, provided by the Office of the Provost or by endowments established by MU alums and friends, create opportunities for students to develop the skills necessary for professional success after they leave the University. 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.
