Summer Research Grant

What are Summer Research Grants?

The Summer Research Grants are intended to stimulate student/faculty collaborative projects. Students may request up to $3,500 and may include a payable award in addition to project expendables. The project may last anywhere from 1 to 10 weeks, depending on the nature of the project. While most partnerships involve one-to-one work with a faculty member, students can work with multiple faculty members or with other students. If working with other students, each student must submit an application stating his/her personal contribution to the project and is eligible to receive up to $3,500. All award funding must be spent by September 1st. The Summer Research Program cannot fund service-learning programs, tuition, DU courses (direct or indirect), or lessons. Graduating Seniors are not eligible to apply for a Summer grant.

Student awards, if requested, will be paid on a monthly basis. This request must be included in your project budget. 

Summer application deadline: April 1, 2022
