UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
The Undergraduate Stipends & Expenses Grant is intended to assist in covering expenses necessary to conduct research. Funds may be used for travel to conduct research; to purchase supplies including, but not limited to, books, software, disposable lab supplies, instructional materials, and printing; and to support student stipends to compensate for time allocated to projects.
Applications for these competitive grants are welcome from all colleges and disciplines. Grant applications can be for individual projects or collaborative projects, and in all cases should be student-authored, with supervision and guidance from the faculty mentor who will be directing the research. In the understanding that good faculty mentorship requires regular meetings and ongoing leadership throughout all phases of a research project, from initial conception to dissemination, faculty mentors are also eligible for a companion award payable on the student researcher's completion of the project.
To receive payment for the grant award:
Upon completion of the URSCA Project, (1) student(s) must complete this Final Report and (2) the mentor must complete this Final Report (3) for expenses, submit a copy of the award letter and original receipts to the URSCA Office using the Travel Expense Report or the Transfer Request form (for purchases made by the department); for stipend payment, the URSCA Office will contact you once both reports have been received.
