The purpose of the Undergraduate Research Grant is to encourage undergraduate students from all disciplines to participate in independent research and creative projects in collaboration with FAU faculty. The research or creative activity conducted by the student generally takes diverse forms of directed research, such as independent study, work on an honors thesis, or part of a larger ongoing study under the direct supervision of a full-time faculty member, rather than work conducted to fulfill regular course or seminar requirements.
A university-wide call for proposals will be distributed before each deadline. All proposals will be reviewed by the Distinction through Discovery Research Grants Committee using the judging criteria presented in the grant package guidelines.
