FOR STUDENTS - FIND FUNDING FOR RESEARCH


Tulane Funding for Tulane Students
Funds are available on campus for your research project. Please read the guidelines carefully in order to make sure that you qualify. Some grants require a professor to submit a grant proposal for student research. After you have a mentoring relationship with a professor, describe your idea for a project and ask your mentor   to support you by submitting a proposal. You may be asked to provide your mentor with a written description of you proposed project.
