UGAR Application Deadlines


  • Applicants must be matriculated as undergraduate students at the college (enrollment designated "R" or "L"), be in good standing with the college, and eligible to participate in college-sponsored programs.  Non-Dartmouth students (including exchange students) are not eligible for UGAR programs.
  • Students who have received funding through a UGAR program must be in good standing in that program (e.g. submitted all required paperwork and final reports) in order to participate in another program or apply for additional research funding.
  • Students interested in being research assistants for faculty on faculty projects should be applying for the part-time scholarship/assistantship programs.  Research grants are intended for more independent projects in which students are intellectually engaged and playing a key role in the project.
  • Funding for UGAR programs is provided by alumni, foundations, external grants, the college, and other sources.
