Research Grants & Funding for Current Students

Research Grants & Funding for Current Students

We encourage all of our students to get involved in research, even during their time as undergraduates. Not only does it open up scholarship opportunities, it takes the knowledge you gain in the classroom and lets you apply it to real life projects and situations. In other words, you'll learn more than you ever thought possible about any subject you want to tackle.
