Comprehensive Summer Grants

Deadline: March 20, 2017

The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program offers the Comprehensive Summer Grant which supports a broad array of Arts and Letters and interdisciplinary research and creative projects (see Past Awards).

Students may independently design their projects, or propose a project related to some aspect of the research of a supervising faculty member. In either case, a regular faculty member (T&R or SPF) must endorse the proposal and supervise the project. 

Comprehensive Summer Grants provide support for living expenses, travel or materials for students with majors or minors in the College of Arts and Letters. Funding for the purchase of computers, cameras, and other electronic equipment will not be provided.

Proposals involving travel to countries for which a State Department travel warning has been issued will not be considered unless the student is traveling with a University of Notre Dame faculty member. 

The maximum award for each of these grants is $4,500; students may apply for smaller grants and for varying time periods. For instructions on the application process, see UROP Proposal Requirements for Academic Year & Summer Submissions.

Applicants must inform Therese Blacketor, Student Program Coordinator for the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts (ISLA), if they have also applied for Kellogg or Kroc summer grants.

See Summer Grant Post-Award Requirements for final report guidelines.
