Notre Dame's Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts supports and promotes the research and creative endeavors of current Arts and Letters undergraduates and graduate students (those enrolled in Ph.D., DMA, and MFA programs) through its Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) and Graduate Student Research Opportunity Program (GROP).
These programs offer a variety of academic year and summer funding opportunities. Some grants focus on supporting scholarship on particular themes and topics, while others are dedicated to supporting general scholarly and creative endeavors. All of the grants are to be used to support student-initiated projects. Only the funded student may use the award to carry out the project.
