Travel, research supplies and other valid expenses may be reimbursed up to the limit of an individual grant. Proposed research projects must be independent and outside the requirements of a Lehigh-led study abroad experience, summer course, or other formalized experience. Undergraduate Research Grants may fund up to $3,000 during the academic year and $5,000 during the Summer. Strohl awards can be combined with funding from other sources (i.e., from faculty advisors, department chairs, center directors, etc.). Research should be completed within one year of receipt of the award. The grant recipient will then submit a brief report on the results of the project, and participate in the student poster symposium held annually in the Fall.
