Individual Student Support
Students enrolled in Economics 495 and carrying out related Honors research activity can apply for grants from MITRE to support their research. These awards require a letter of support from a supervising faculty member indicating the role of such support in completing a research project. MITRE Undergraduate Research Grants can be used to cover research-related expenses such as travel and purchases of data, software, and supplies.
Undergraduate Research Network
UGRN is a web-based tool used to facilitate matching faculty-led projects with highly qualified Economics undergraduate students. Faculty will post their projects and economics majors will apply to work on a specific project. As part of the student application process, students will complete a profile that will allow faculty to quickly evaluate the student’s skill set. MITRE provides funding that faculty may use to hire economics majors.
