Research Grants

Virginia Wesleyan's Undergraduate Research Program is pleased to accept proposals from individual students or groups of students for funding in support of research projects.

  3. The application should demonstrate that the student(s) has given considerable thought to the research project.
  4. The student(s) must be enrolled at Virginia Wesleyan College and show evidence of continuing enrollment at Virginia Wesleyan College or graduate school for the following semester.
