URSA announces new grant programs for travel and equipment


Baylor’s Undergraduate Research & Scholarly Achievement (URSA) program is now offering two new grants: the Supplemental Travel Grant and the Supplemental Equipment and Supplies Grant. Both new programs are designed to broaden the scope of undergraduate research support provided to faculty and students

The Travel Grant Program will support faculty or student travel that enhances and expands undergraduate research opportunities at Baylor.  A travel grant may cover expenses for faculty travel to professional meetings to improve leadership in undergraduate mentoring and attract external funding to support undergraduate research. Travel grants may also support student travel to present research findings at a professional meeting or to conduct a short-term research project.

The Equipment and Supply Grant Program allows investigators to purchase equipment or supplies to provide long-term support for undergraduate research.

The deadline for submission of proposals to both programs is February 18, 2015.
