Flagler College Internal Funding Awards may vary in total amount available from year to year. There are three student research award categories: Materials Awards, Dissemination Awards and Research Awards. Review the grant guideline document sections describing each award, then carefully review the Undergraduate Student Research Grant Guidelines before preparing your application.
All Undergraduate Student Grant Applications should be submitted using the fillable PDF form below. Students should complete the entire application (except for the faculty letter of support), digitally sign the documents (instructions included on the form), and e-mail a saved copy to their research advisor. The research advisor will read the entire application, write the letter of support, digitally sign, and then submit the application directly to Dr. Barbara Blonder using the “Send as Email” button at the end of the application form. All fields are required to be completed prior to submission. You may copy and paste information from Word into the fillable PDF.
To encourage undergraduate students from all disciplines to participate in independent research and creative projects in collaboration with Flagler College faculty.
Proposal applications are due at 5 p.m. on the following dates:
Funds must be used between the end of the semester the grant is awarded and June 15. The project, however, may continue past this date. (Note: the period of time that the student will be working on the project must be clearly detailed in the timeline included with the application). A student/group may reapply for additional funding for a project, but preference will be given to those who have not received grant money.
The maximum amount available for a single grant is $500. Typically, grants can be used for activities in direct support of the research project (e.g., field sites, museums, historic sites), most materials and equipment, and travel to conferences. Students may develop individual projects or may work together on group projects. In either situation, each student must apply for funding separately.
When applicable, all purchases (e.g., leftover materials and equipment) must remain at Flagler College after the project is completed as property of the mentor’s department, and any unused funds must be returned to the office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs.
Grants may not be used for stipends (e.g., salary for applicant or any assistants) or incentives for human subjects.
Students are encouraged to submit as many proposals as they wish; however, they may only be approved for one completed proposal.
The requested budget is justified and necessary for the completion of the project.
The mentor endorses the project and assures the reviewers that no other funds exist for parts/all of the project.
Proposals must be clear, concise, and understandable for faculty from a wide variety of backgrounds. Strong proposals will also meet the following criteria:
