Funding for Research

Student Supplies and Equipment Grants through Methodist University

Students who need assistance purchasing basic research and creativity supplies (e.g., paint, reagents, sheet music, etc.) are encouraged to apply for a Project Supplies Grant. The application process is competitive. Students can only apply for one supplies grant per academic year.

Furthermore, students who need assistance purchasing equipment (e.g., discipline-specific instrumentation) for their research and creativity project may apply for a Project Equipment Grant. The application is competitive. Students can only apply for one equipment grant per academic year.

Student Travel Grant through Methodist University

Students wishing to travel to present their projects can apply to receive a travel grant through CURC. The application process is competitive, and applicants may be awarded up to $500.00. Students can apply for only one travel grant per academic year.

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 CURC 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.
