Valpo supports undergraduate research by offering several opportunities for students to get funding for their work. Each year, the Creative Work and Research Committee (CWRC) grants $10,000 for undergraduate research. Students can use these funds either for equipment, supplies, photocopying, and other research needs or for travel, meals, and lodging to present their findings at conferences. The University also offers a limited amount of free housing in the residence halls, in the form of Summer Research Housing Grants, to students who are on campus doing research for at least 30 hours per week in the summer. Though every effort is made to accommodate requests, space limitations and funding determine how many awards are given each year.
