Find a Faculty Mentor

Don’t let applying for an undergraduate research grant seem like a daunting task. One of the first steps in the process is finding a faculty mentor to work with through the duration of writing your grant proposal and completing your research if it is funded.

While the process can be overwhelming, many UWL faculty members are willing to work with students on research and are extremely knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to the grant writing process. Do not be afraid to ask for help!

Words of advice from one of our own -

"In reference to applying for an Undergrad Research and Creativity grant, the biggest obstacle was to understand everything involved in grant writing and what limitations and guidelines would apply to the potential funding. As a first generation college student it was especially overwhelming reading through the guidelines, but I overcame these obstacles by working closely with my faculty mentor and asking questions about everything that was even a little unclear. If you’re not sure about something, ask questions!"
