FLC supports two types of undergraduate research grants: one for travel to present completed work outside Durango, and one to support the research and creative activities themselves. Students may receive no more than two grants total during their time at FLC.

Student Travel Grants

The Student Travel Grants program supports student travel to conferences, symposiums, design competitions, theatre or music festivals, art exhibits, etc. Student travel grants are designed to support the sharing of completed student work outside Durango.

Student Travel Grants are considered for funding on a rolling deadline - when your work has been accepted for presentation, you may apply. Funding is limited to $800 per student. Students traveling to the same conference should submit one application, and share travel costs (e.g. carpooling, sharing hotel rooms) as much as possible.

Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities Grants

FLC Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities Grants are designed to allow students to complete research or creative activities. Grants may fund research supplies, travel to field sites or archives, supplies to create art works or theatre performances etc. Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities Grants are available through a competitive application, and can provide students up to $1000 per student.

Research and Creative Activity Grants are available on two different timelines:

  • "Just-In-Time" funding is intended for students with a one-semester senior seminar or research project.  These students will prepare a proposal in the first few weeks of class to complete work in the same term.
  • Term-to-Term funding is intended for student with a two-semester senior seminar or research project.  These students will spend much of their first term doing research and preparing a proposal to complete work in the following term.
