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. Applicants can receive up to $1,000 per grant for an Individual or Team Research Grant and up to $500 for a FAST or Conference Grant.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 income lost because of reduced hours at a current or continued place of employment). DURF grants may be expended during the fall, spring, or summer terms.
