Guild Undergraduate Creative Work and Research Grants are awarded by the Valparaiso University Creative Work and Research Committee (CWRC) two times a year. Funding for the grants is provided by the University Guild’s Student Research Endowment Fund. The University Guild is an organization that was created in 1931 with the sole purpose of providing an enhanced learning experience for current Valpo students. Members of the Guild include alumni and current and former parents of Valpo students. Each year, the Guild funds campus gift grants, student research grants, and scholarships.

The following Valparaiso University students were awarded Guild Undergraduate Creative Work and Research Expense Grants from the Creative Work and Research Committee during the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters.
