Leave term grants are for students working on projects full time during a leave term. Students who plan to work on projects part-time are not eligible to apply.
Students must be intellectually engaged and play a key role in the project:
- Students who will be serving as research assistants on faculty projects may apply for part-time research assistantship programs such as Presidential Scholars or URAD.
- Priority will be given to students who have been engaged in research with their faculty research mentor prior to the leave term.
Students must be working directly with a Dartmouth College faculty mentor:
- This includes faculty at the College, Geisel School of Medicine, Tuck School of Business, and Thayer School of Engineering. Please contact Undergraduate Research if you have questions about your advisor's eligibility to supervise your research.
- Students doing research with faculty at other (non-Dartmouth) institutions are not eligible for research grants.
Group projects are welcomed. Students planning to apply as a group are encouraged to meet with UGAR prior to submitting an application. The research must be directly mentored by a Dartmouth faculty member. Applicants should check the eligibility requirements to ensure that all members of the group are eligible to apply.
