Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society, Washington University Chapter Grants
Two grants-in-aid for scientific research of up to $1,500 are made by the Washington University Chapter of Sigma Xi to undergraduate students. The funds may be utilized for items including purchase of materials for experiments, copying and archival fees, or travel to present research findings at professional society meetings. Projects requiring a Human Subject Review should complete such clearance prior to application. The competition is handled through the Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Research Office located in South Brookings Hall.
