Research grants of up to $1,500 will be available to support undergraduate research in any field. Applicants are encouraged to seek funding from multiple sources. UR Project Grants may be used to purchase laboratory supplies, media supplies, microfilm, software or field materials; fund copying or printing expenses; support telephone, fax or other communication costs; fund travel to a regional library, museum or off-campus field site; or make possible other legitimate research expenses.
The funds must be expended directly in support of the proposed investigation and excludes funding for labor. Funds are not to be used for materials more rightly funded by another source, such as departmental equipment or standard laboratory supplies. Non-consumable items purchased in support undergraduate research become the property of York College of Pennsylvania. Computer software and hardware purchases must be approved by LTS. Reimbursements will be distributed to members of the research team as designated by the faculty mentor and must follow the policies of the College. Grants cannot be applied retroactively to cover expenses for research already completed.
