McAvoy Application

To apply for McAvoy funding, a student should email Professor James Lundberg at and copy the faculty member serving as an advisor to the project. This email should include the following information:

  • A short description of the research project which includes the request for funds, the dates the funds will be used, and an explanation of how the funds will significantly enhance the project (no more than a page total)
  • An itemized budget detailing the proposed expenses

There is no set deadline, as the Department will consider proposals throughout the academic year.  However, majors seeking funding are encouraged to submit an application as early as possible to allow time for a decision and planning for the use of the funds.
