Undergraduate research funds

The Cognitive Science Program offers limited funding for undergraduate student research, including funds needed for honors thesis projects, fieldwork, lab work, access to collections or archives, or attendance at conferences or workshops.

Applications for research funds will be accepted on a rolling basis. Interested applicants should provide the following:

  • a one-paragraph description of the project
  • an itemized budget (including discussion of what is achievable with partial funding)

Applications should be sent to the program coordinator, Prof. Melinh Lai (melinh@uchicago.edu).
