The Gallatin Undergraduate Research Fund (GURF) was created to assist students in funding ($250-$1000) their research projects. A GURF grant may be used to support the purchase of necessary equipment, travel, or any other reasonable and justified expenses (including money to replace necessary income from a summer job). All applications require a project proposal, a proposed budget, and a faculty mentor’s assessment.
Applicants must be current first-year students, sophomores, juniors, or first-term seniors in the Gallatin School.
Grants may be used in the fall, spring and summer semesters. At the end of the grant period, awardees are required to submit a report detailing the results of the research conducted and how GURF’s financial support contributed to the project.
