Sociology Undergraduate Research Grant Competition

The Department of Sociology announces a grant competition for undergraduate research. It is open to Sociology majors, and it will award 5 grants of $500 each. Students will work with a Sociology Department faculty member during the Spring 2020 semester. Students can propose their own research or work on a faculty member’s ongoing research project. The goal of this program is to give Sociology majors practical research experience.

Undergraduate students are encouraged to contact potential faculty mentors directly, but Sociology majors who need help finding a faculty mentor may email Ms. Covey (katherine.covey@uconn.edu) describing your sociological interests.

Applications are due October 14, 2019. Please click here for more details and to access the application.
