The University is committed to recognizing and supporting scholarly research contributions through grants and awards programs.
The University Research Grant (URG) program is an internal grant program provided by the University and administered by each individual college.
The Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program is designed to provide intensive research experiences for undergraduate students in all disciplines. Faculty mentors will need to complete an application to apply on behalf of their students.
The Outstanding Researcher Awards were first proposed by the University Research Council in 1984 to recognize individuals actively involved in research. Research awards are given to individuals who are beginning their academic careers, to those who have conducted research at an outstanding level among peers in their college, and to those who have conducted research at an outstanding level among peers at the University.
