Student Research Grants at Millersville University


The Millersville University Office of Grants, Sponsored Programs, and Research exists to help both students and faculty pursue grant and fellowship funding. Millersville students can find information on internal funding supporting student creative and scholarly projects. Funding ranges between $500 and $5,000 and varies by program and project type.

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 application forms, funding guidelines, eligibility requirements, and program-specific contact information can be found below. Though some of the awards are listed as "scholarships" they all support programs where research or creative activity is emphasized.
