Gallatin Undergraduate Research Fund (GURF)

Since research often requires financial support, the Gallatin Undergraduate Research Fund was created to assist students in funding their research projects. Applicants must be current first-years, sophomores, juniors, or first-term seniors in the Gallatin School. 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).

Applications are reviewed by a committee of faculty and administrators and awards range from $250 to $1,000. All applications require a project proposal, a proposed budget and an assessment completed by a faculty mentor. The entire proposal must be submitted online.
Deadlines for GURF grants are as follows:

Fall term

November 1st  
Spring term
March 1st  

Grants may be used in the fall, spring and summer semesters. Students are required to submit a report detailing the results of their research and how this financial support assisted the project at the end of the grant period.

In accepting a grant, the student gives Gallatin permission to publish the project abstract online and/or in print.
