Student-Faculty Research

Support for Undergraduate Research at Millersville University

Every academic year Millersville University makes approximatey $10,000 available to support student and student-faculty research. These funds, provided by the Office of the Provost or by endowments established by Millersville alumni and friends, create opportunities for students to develop the skills necessary for professional success after they leave the University. Many of the funds are open to students from across the University, while others are restricted to specific majors or fields of study.

Information on specific funding programs including applications forms, funding guidelines, eligibility requirements and program specific contact information can be found by following the links below. Importantly, though some of the awards are listed as "scholarships" they all support programs where research is empahsized.
