Take Your Research Further With a Student Research Grant

January 19, 2022

Students conducting research.

Are you and a group of your fellow students excited about testing a new idea or exploring a compelling research question? Do you want to extend work that you started through your Bass Connections project?

Students can apply for research funding, either individually or as a group, through the following opportunities:

Bass Connections Student Research Awards

Now accepting proposals until March 5, 2022 at 5:00 p.m.

The Bass Connections Student Research Award provides funds of up to $3,000 (for one to two students) or $5,000 (for groups of more than two students) to support individual or collaborative student-directed research projects. Undergraduate and graduate students from any Duke school may apply.

Individual research projects must stem from a Bass Connections year-long project team or summer program experience. Collaborative research projects do not require prior participation in Bass Connections. All projects must have a faculty mentor and applicants must be active students during the grant period (May 2022 to May 2023). 

Please read the proposal guidelines carefully and submit a proposal using our online application by March 5 at 5:00 p.m.
