Funding for Undergraduate Research
Applications for the IHHE Research and Extension Experiences for Undergraduates (REEU) mini-grant awards for 2022 will be accepted until the deadline of 5 p.m. on May 4, 2022. Late applications will not be accepted. Awardees will be notified before the end of spring 2022 semester.
- U of I undergraduate students must be enrolled full time in any major. Qualified students must have completed coursework for the first year of their majors, with a minimum of 16 credit hours of STEM-based courses.
Award and Conditions
- Awards consist of $500 or $1,000 to support research projects. We anticipate offering as many as 10 awards at $500 and five awards at $1,000.
Applicants must be working with a faculty or industry mentor to develop and submit a research proposal focused on plant, animal or human health in complex, managed ecosystems. While applications must be broadly relevant to this topic, we will consider applications from any area of STEM. The award can support a project to be conducted during summer 2022 or during the fall 2022 semester.
Awards may be used to support research (supplies, instrument time, travel to field sites, etc.) but cannot be used to support travel to conferences for research presentations (for this we direct you to the Office of Undergraduate Research travel grant program).
