FSU undergraduate students in all majors can apply for an FSU IDEA Grant (formerly URCAA, MRCE, PRSF). Selected applicants will receive a summer stipend of up to $4,000 (or up to $6,000 for groups or $5,000 for the ACC IDEA Grant) to fund their self-designed work on a topic, project, research problem, artistic product or performance, or other entrepreneurial or creative idea. Projects must last 8-12 weeks and be under the mentorship of a supervising faculty member. The project does not need to be tied to a student’s major or minor, but it should be guided by a student’s academic goals and future plans. Funds may be used for living expenses, materials, lost income from not working during the summer, and/or travel. Projects must be culminated in oral, poster, or creative presentation at the annual President’s Showcase.
