Funding Opportunities

We have established four funding mechanisms to support Research that Reaches Out projects that integrate research and service.

Semester Project Support

Funds are available for supporting new opportunities for Macon students to engage in service-research activities at the Explore and Express levels as part of Fall and Spring coursework. We are particularly interested in funding proposals that bring new opportunities to students and demonstrate a plan for long-term sustainability. 

We are no longer accepting applications for 2018-2019 funding. Stay tuned in the coming months as we release information about funding opportunities, applications, and deadlines for the 2019-2020 academic year. 

Summer Student Research Program

Those interested in conducting summer projects with Macon traditional undergraduate students should apply through this program.

Requests for student travel funding should go through the Provost's office. The application for student travel funding is available here.
