Proposals now being accepted for Undergraduate Research Faculty Grant Program
From: Office of Undergraduate Research
The mission of the Office of Undergraduate Research is to foster an undergraduate research community that promotes, enhances, and expands undergraduate research opportunities for all students at Virginia Tech. Our vision is to provide undergraduate research opportunities for all students, in all fields of study, beginning their first year through a capstone experience.
The goals of the Undergraduate Research Faculty Grant Program are to:
- Increase student access to genuine undergraduate research opportunities, and
- To widen the breadth of opportunities and participation across majors.
This year, the Undergraduate Research Faculty Grant Program will provide a handful of grants of up to $10,000 to individual faculty, teams of faculty, or departments, to facilitate the development or support of novel programs that aim to scale and increase access to undergraduate research opportunities for VT students. Proposals are now being accepted through Oct. 1 at 5 p.m., with awards being announced by Nov. 1, to fund projects that must be completed within FY22 (by June 30, 2022). More information about the program and application is available online: https://www.research.undergraduate.vt.edu/our-services/for-faculty/ug-research-faculty-grant.html
