Engaging students, furthering research
The Office of Research & Creative Activities sponsors annual Mentoring Environment Grants (MEG) to facilitate undergraduate work with faculty on research, field studies, or creative projects. Each grant is worth up to $20,000.
The grant monies can be used to pay undergraduate/graduate student wages, purchase supplies, and cover travel expenses. They cannot be used to cover faculty wages or equipment.
Brigham Young University undergraduates who partner with faculty members on special projects are publishing in academic journals and giving presentations at conferences worldwide. These rich, out-of-classroom experiences embellish resumes and open doors after graduation.
