Amounts of $250-$350 are available to students who apply, and funding can be used for a broad range of research expenses (travel costs, materials, interview incentives, etc.). 

If you are an Undergraduate Student that is interested in conducting a research project, but are unsure of what may be possible, or would like to explore a variety of research topics, please do not hesitate to reach out! We are happy to help you craft your project and let you know of what resources are out there.
