Grant Opportunities

Fordham College at Rose Hill offers three types of grants for eligible students interested in conducting research.  Undergraduate Research Grants are designed to support research during the academic year.  Summer Research Grants provide support for students conducting research during the summer.  Travel Grants provide support for students presenting their research at a professional conference.   Detailed information about these grants, as well as application information and deadlines, can be found below.


Undergraduate Research Grants 

Fordham College at Rose Hill (FCRH) is able to offer financial support (up to $1500) for undergraduate research through the Undergraduate Research Grant Program, which provides funding for students to conduct supervised research across all disciplines throughout the academic year. 

The Undergraduate Research Program encourages students to be intimately engaged in the research process as they work on their own research or that of a faculty mentor. Students are expected to receive training in the research methods of their discipline as they work to collect and analyze data, develop an original composition, or participate in other appropriate scholarly and creative activities. The Program particularly encourages students and their faculty mentors to think critically about how their work fits in with the larger academic community as they prepare their projects for public dissemination and presentation. 

Deadlines:  Applications are accepted at two points during the academic year:  October 3, 2014 for the fall grant cycle; February 6, 2015 for the spring grant cycle.
