The Undergraduate Research and Creative Scholarship Program offers mini-grants to support student research, scholarly works and creative projects.  The primary aim of the grant is to foster student-initiated, faculty-supervised research or scholarly/creative activity that is intended to result in an original contribution to the discipline.

Any currently enrolled MSU Denver undergraduate student who is conducting a research project or scholarly/creative works under the mentorship of an MSU Denver faculty member is eligible to receive funding ($500 maximum).  We encourage undergraduate students from all disciplines to apply.

*Note: Students can request to use funds as a stipend. See application for details.

There will be two opportunities to apply for a mini-grant, October 6th and February 2nd. Awards will be made in November and March respectively. Please be aware that funds must be spent by June 30th, 2024.


The Fall 2023 URCSP mini-grant application is now closed. Check back in January for the Spring Application.  Click on “Application Preview” to view a pdf of the application.
