OUR Supply Awards
Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) Supply Awards provide up to $500 to undergraduate students engaged in research or creative projects to cover expenses associated with those projects (e.g., supplies and/or consumables in the laboratory or studio, printing and copying, software). This award is intended to support expenses that are specific to a student’s project and consumed through use in the student’s project.
OUR Supply Awards are available to full-time undergraduate students, in good academic standing, who are pursing a bachelor's degree in all majors at all UConn campuses. Part-time students may apply for these awards if they have completed at least 60 academic credits (including at least 12 credits at UConn).
For full eligibility requirements, visit https://ugradresearch.uconn.edu/supply-awards/.
Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and awards are made until funds are exhausted. The deadline to apply for an OUR Supply Award is March 4, 2024. Supply awards will not normally be made in support of summer projects, but applications related to summer work will be considered if funding remains after the application deadline. Funding for this program, which is intended to support students across the university, is limited. Multiple students applying for support for the same project or related projects may receive smaller awards. Students who have previously received support from OUR for their projects may receive smaller awards or lower priority for funding.
