Research grants are intended for students working on projects full time during a leave term. Students must be intellectually engaged and playing a key role in the project. Those who will be serving as research assistants for faculty on faculty projects should apply for the part-time scholarship and assistantship programs, such as Presidential Scholars, Junior Research Scholars and Sophomore Research Scholars.
Students must be working directly with a Dartmouth College faculty mentor on the research. This generally 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, and students planning to apply to work as a group are encouraged to meet with UGAR prior to submitting an application. The research must be faculty-mentored and applicants should check the grant eligibility requirements to ensure that are members of the group are eligible to apply.
Applicants can receive a maximum of 2 leave term grants (students are eligible for senior honors thesis grants even if they have received 2 leave term grants).
