Funding: Applying for Undergraduate Academic Project Grants

The Honors College sponsors Undergraduate Academic Project Grants (up to $400 each) to fund project-related expenses. They are reviewed on a continuous cycle from October 1, 2013 to March 14, 2014.

Undergraduate Academic Project Grants support undergraduate research and creative work at Western Carolina University. Any full-time student or group of students working with a faculty sponsor is eligible to apply for a grant that might provide support in many ways, including travel, equipment, or supplies.  Equipment purchased through a grant reverts back to the student’s department once the project is complete.

This program is supported by Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) funds generated from local tuition.
