The Temple University Office of the Provost and the deans of Temple University’s schools and colleges provide this funding opportunity to encourage and support undergraduate students engaged in scholarly, creative, and research projects that contribute to advancing their field of study.

The CARAS program makes two types of grants: Research/Creative Project Grants and Travel Grants. Research/Creative Project Grants provide undergraduate students grants of up to $4,000 in support of scholarly, research or creative arts projects undertaken with the supervision of a Temple faculty mentor. Travel Grants provide funding support for undergraduate travel to conferences to present original research or creative work.
