Rolling Deadline

The Amy Gutmann and Michael Doyle Research Opportunities Fund is used at the discretion of the director of CURF to assist students with activities associated with their independent research projects. This may include covering the cost of travel to research sites, assisting with living expenses during a research project away from campus, or support to present at an academic conference. Requests for support for fee-based programs (at Penn or elsewhere) will not be approved. This should be considered emergency funding to be used only when no other sources of funding are available. Applicants can expect to receive no more than $500 from this fund. Apply to the Gutmann-Doyle Fund here.

Preferred Qualifications

Applicants must be current, full-time, regularly enrolled undergraduate students, and must plan to use all funds received before the completion of their degree.

There is no annual deadline; all applications will be considered in the order they are received, and decisions will be made by CURF on the merits of the application and the needs of the applicant.
