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 are awarded five times each academic year and do not have any pre-set funding limitations (but must conform with College policies). See “next steps” for more details.

A proposal can only be submitted once and considered during one application round. If re-submitted, the proposal will be denied any funding. Applicants—especially students—should present their proposals to their mentors prior to submitting to the CCI so as to ensure they submit a proposal that is as polished as possible.

Likewise, 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 2020: September 8; October 5; November 2
Spring 2021: February 1; March 6

External funding opportunities also exist to support student travel and research. Check out the External Funding Opportunities tab below for additional resources.

Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF)

These fellowships allow talented students to spend a portion of their summer conducting research or carrying out a creative project 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.
