Overview:

Grants-In-Aid of Undergraduate Research

The Museum of Comparative Zoology (MCZ), the Harvard University Herbaria (HUH), and the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University (AA) are pleased to award grants in support of faculty-supervised research by Harvard College undergraduates. Projects in any subject area are eligible for support, although priority may be given to projects that utilize MCZ, HUH, or AA research collections, laboratories and other facilities, and to related fieldwork. Funds from the HUH are primarily available to support projects in the field of plant biology; funds from the AA primarily target research that utilizes its living collections. Projects that facilitate senior honors theses or associated preliminary studies are particularly encouraged. 

Awards range from $500 to $4,000 and may provide support for the academic year (fall and spring semesters) or summer. Applicants are strongly encouraged to simultaneously apply for research support from the Harvard College Research Program (HCRP).
