Internal Funding Opportunities for Students

CCI Grants

CCI grants support a wide range of undergraduate research and creative endeavors, from field experiences and student conference attendance to the purchase of equipment and supplies. Grants of no more than $1000 are awarded five times each academic year and do not have any pre-set funding limitations (but must conform with College policies).

Applicants for CCI grants may only submit one application each academic year. Applications that do not receive funding may be revised and resubmitted. Student applicants should work with their faculty sponsors prior to submitting to the CCI so as to ensure they submit a proposal that is as polished as possible. No proposal is guaranteed funding. Even if a proposal is funded, it may only be funded partially.

Certain proposals are not funded by the Center for Creative Inquiry. These include:

  1. Funding for internships
  2. Student employment
  3. Faculty travel

Application Deadlines

Fall 2022: September 16; October 14; November 18
Spring 2023: January 27; February 24

Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF)

SURF deadline for academic year 2022-23: March 11, 2023

These fellowships allow talented students to spend a portion of their summer conducting research or carrying out a creative project under the guidance of a faculty mentor that makes an original contribution to their chosen discipline, extending learning beyond the academic year.

Projects emanating from all disciplines are eligible, as well as interdisciplinary projects. Each fellowship offers $4,000 (taxable income) to the successful student applicant. In addition, each faculty mentor of the successful student applicant will receive $800.
