Student ScientistPresident's Undergraduate Summer Research
Grant Program

Each spring semester the Killgore Research Committee requests proposals for the President's Undergraduate Summer Research Grant Program. Generally, awards are made in the amount of $3,500 or less and are available for all disciplines. Faculty should notify students of this opportunity.

Eligibility: These grants are restricted to WTAMU students who are in good standing at the time of the project and are being advised in their research by a WTAMU faculty member. Student proposals will not be considered without a faculty sponsor.
 
Proposals must follow the proposal instructions below to be considered for funding. Links to the instructions and required forms can be found below. 

Questions may be emailed to Grant Coordinator Steve McLean, or you may call Steve at 806-651-2983, or come by his office in the Killgore Research Center, Room 176.  Termination of the student’s relationship with WTAMU will result in the termination of the grant.

International travel cannot be funded through this program.  No course credit is provided for any internal grant program.
