Dean's Undergraduate Research Fund Grants
Since research often requires financial support, the Dean’s Undergraduate Research Fund was created in 1996 to assist students in funding their projects. A committee of faculty reviews all DURF applications and makes awards which range from $250 to $1,000. FAS grants and Conference grants range from $250 to $500. Applicants must be current freshmen, sophomores, juniors, or first-term seniors in the College of Arts and Science. A DURF grant may be used to support the purchase of necessary equipment, travel to conferences or collections, computer time, or any other reasonable and justified expense (including money to replace necessary income from a summer job). DURF grants may be expended during the fall, spring, or summer terms.
