Applying for Funding

DSU sets aside funding specifically to cover expenses related to faculty-student collaborative research. Funding can be requested for research projects in any discipline, including natural sciences, agriculture, social sciences, humanities, and arts if the study has research-related expenses. Projects may be conducted in collaboration with local businesses, but a faculty sponsor must be responsible for the dispensation of funds. Past funded projects and an application form can be found at this link. If you have any further questions, please contact:
