The UCI Scholars program offers grant opportunities to students and faculty of all disciplines whose work would advance core elements of Monmouth’s Strategic Plan and support the UCI’s mission. Each year, the program supports dozens of hands-on research projects that provide real world experience to students while helping make a positive impact in coastal communities.
Monmouth University students and faculty can apply for:
- Faculty Enrichment Grants for the enhancement of existing curriculum, new curriculum development, research and scholarship, and team-teaching opportunities.
- Mini-Grants for conference fees, symposia, guest speaker honoraria, equipment and supplies, and other needs.
- Student-Faculty Collaborative Summer Research Grants for projects either proposed by students with the support of a faculty mentor or proposed by a faculty member to enable students to conduct research with them.
