Grants and Fellowships
The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is pleased to provide funding on a competitive basis to support meaningful, campus-wide, undergraduate scholarly activities. All full and part-time undergraduate students are eligible to apply for Undergraduate Research Grants.
College of Science and Health Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program
The Dean's Distinguished Fellowship research program is intended to foster collaborative research between an undergraduate student and her/his faculty mentor. This program encourages students to participate in a range of scientific experiences, including project design and implementation, analysis and summary of results, and professional communication of findings. It is assumed that the faculty mentor will help structure and actively participate in all phases of the research project while allowing the student to assume a suitable level of independence and responsibility. Four thousand dollars for each fellowship plus $500 for supplies, if needed, will be awarded. Awards will be paid in one lump sum on June 1. Application forms (Word format) are available. A description of program policies is available here as well as the By-laws. The following link is for a flyer announcing the Summer, 2013 Dean's Research Fellowships.
The CSAH Supplies and Travel grants are designed to support undergraduates in initiating and conducting research with a faculty mentor, and in disseminating the results of their work to scientific audiences. Eligible students may apply for up to $800 per academic year ($400 Supplies and $400 Travel) and $400 per summer for the cost of supplies related to their research projects, and/or for the cost of travel to present the results of their work at a professional meeting. Proposals must be received in the Office of the Dean, College of SAH, by the first Monday of October (Fall semester funding), December (Spring semester funding), or April (summer funding). Early submissions are accepted and encouraged. To be eligible, students must be majoring in one of the SAH disciplines, have a cumulative GPA > 2.5, and be enrolled full time. Supplies funding for summer work is contingent upon enrollment during the following Fall semester. Students receiving a grant award must present their results at the Annual UW-L Undergraduate Research Symposium.
