Undergraduate Diversity Research Grant
Call for Proposals

The Undergraduate Diversity Research Grant (UDRG) is designed to stimulate, support and recognize outstanding undergraduate research projects related to diversity; and to promote diversity research as a legitimate and valued area of scholarship.  Diversity in the context of this grant award includes the exploration of issues related to class, culture, disability, gender, race/ethnicity, language, and sexual orientation.

We invite high quality proposals to explore issues of diversity on a local, national, and/or global level and its educational, economic, and societal impact.  We are interested in projects that will have an impact on the Virginia Tech community. Research proposals that examine these issues as a primary or secondary focus will be most competitive.  Projects may be new initiatives or work that is already in progress.  However, previous grant recipients will not be refunded for the same project. Up to five grants of $500 will be awarded
