Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Undergraduate Research Grant

These stipends are available for undergraduates with declared Linguistics majors and minors as a resource for funding their own research projects. Whether writing a senior thesis, preparing a writing sample for advanced degree applications, or just looking to gain potential job experience, undergraduates can apply for money to defray research expenses on a rolling basis throughout the year. For substantial summer projects, a stipend will also be offered. This program expands upon the department’s current resources available for faculty- and graduate-student-initiated projects to include undergraduate-initiated research.

Applications for the summer stipend of $1,500 are due April 15 every year. Students can apply for this stipend and request coverage of research costs at the same time. In order to qualify for this stipend, though, a student must propose a significant research project, for instance, work that would take at least six weeks to complete. The student must meet regularly with a faculty or graduate student supervisor. Finally, the student must submit a written paper or report at the start of the Fall term. The grants available to students during the academic year will be accepted on a rolling basis and still require a supervisor. The semester funding only covers costs related to research and does not include a stipend.
