Fund for Undergraduate Scholarly Experiences (FUSE)
Grants of up to $4,500 per student are available to UNO undergraduates.
Eligibility is restricted to those UNO undergraduate students (and students from other NU programs) who pay their tuition through UNO.
The FUSE Application Process
Students are expected to write their own FUSE proposals with input from their faculty mentor. Proposals must describe:
- The scholarly project
- The product of the proposed work
- Its contribution to the field or conceptual importance
Proposals must include a detailed timeline for the project, with a student commitment to a minimum of 200 hours to their project (e.g., 20 hours per week for 10 weeks).
Proposals must cite literature or other information referenced in the proposal. Proposals must clearly explain the roles of the student and the faculty mentor in the project. Please follow the FUSE Application Guidelines to ensure your proposal will not be rejected before it is reviewed.
Once your proposal is ready for submission, complete the proposal submission form.
