Individual Research and Creative Projects

In continued efforts to support undergraduate students in their individual research and creative projects, the English Department has created application processes for project funding and conference travel. Students are encouraged and expected to seek funding first and foremost from URS administered programs: https://undergraduateresearch.duke.edu/opportunities. Funding from the English Department is not guaranteed for any project and will be awarded and administered on a rolling basis.
