Provost's Undergraduate Fellowship (PUF)

The Provost’s Undergraduate Fellowship (PUF) supports undergraduate students doing research or creative projects under the guidance of UC Davis faculty members. Students from all discipline areas are eligible to apply. Past projects have involved laboratory research, field studies, survey research, film production, design and creation of art elements, music composition, fine arts performances, travel to library or research collections, and many other endeavors. Group projects are not appropriate, however, separate (but linked) projects may be considered. The maximum award is $1,800 toward approved costs directly related to the project.
