Discovery Fund

You can say “yes” to new experiences.

Have an idea for a project you want to pursue but can’t afford on your own?

Discovery Fund grants enable scholars to say “yes” to opportunities that will accelerate their life experience and increase their self-awareness. Through the Discovery Fund, you could apply for grants of up to $8,000 over the course of your four years at Carolina.

For example, within the past few years scholars have:

  • Examined the impact of innovation and entrepreneurship in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans
  • Researched food and agriculture industries in Iceland, Italy, and the United States
  • Investigated renewable energy infrastructure systems throughout Europe
  • Studied under famous artists and musicians

We’re especially partial to proposals that focus on new ideas, practical skills, and connections with Morehead-Cain Alumni. So ask yourself: what do you want to discover?
