McCormick School of Engineering, Northwestern University
As a McCormick undergraduate, you have the chance to take part in the kind of unique and forward-looking research that defines Northwestern University. Fortunately there are also numerous opportunities to fund your research.
Thanks to the generosity of our partner companies in private industry, the McCormick Office of Corporate Relations is able to offer sponsored research opportunities to our sophomores and juniors.
Northwestern offers its students numerous opportunities to fund their research through grants. Funding is available for the academic year, summer projects, and conference travel.
The Office of the Provost has developed a searchable database as a way of helping students to match their interests to the opportunities on campus and around the world. The Undergrad ARCH (Accessing Research and Creative Help) has faceted search capabilities, enabling you to search in many ways. Undergraduates looking for research positions can learn more about undergraduate research and browse research opportunities from McCormick faculty members through the Undergrad ARCH site.
The Boeing Corporation has generously donated funds to enable McCormick student groups to apply classroom knowledge and concepts to real-world engineering and/or research projects. Weight will be given to the degree to which the money will advance the mission of the group.
McCormick student groups are invited to submit proposals for a maximum award of $2,000 - $4,000 by February 8 at 5 p.m. CST. Awardees will be notified on February 22, 2013.
To submit a proposal, please fill out this form online.
