January Research Opportunity Program

Call for Proposals

In addition to the GRSIL Small Grant Program, we are also excited to introduce the January Research Opportunity Program (JROP) –a grant program for undergraduate students for exploratory research or artistic activity undertaken during J-term 2023.

Any student majoring in the College of Liberal Arts may apply for a JROP award for work undertaken at a site of their choice during J-term. Students must be in good academic standing (expected minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 at the end of the Fall 2022 semester) to apply. Funded students will be awarded a stipend of $850.


How to Apply

To apply, please email GRSI.LAB@unh.edu a two-page outline of the intended activity (exploratory research or artistic activity); your reason or motivation for embarking on the intended activity; how you anticipate spending your time (approx. 12 hours each week of J-term [four weeks]); and the location(s) where the work will be done. All proposals will be reviewed by the GRSIL team, and up to 10 students will be funded for J-term 2023.

Please let us know how you heard about the JROP proposal.
