Since 1995, the Richter Memorial Trusts have provided more than $1.3 million to support students pursuing projects that foster independence of thought and expression beyond the classic classroom setting. Funds have supported travel to conduct research, research internships, and the purchase of materials, supplies, or equipment to pursue your ambitious independent and creative projects. And, any student in any discipline is eligible to apply for funds from the Richter program.

NEW for Fall 2021! The Richter application process has been updated! Faculty sponsor approval MUST be indicated before the application will be considered. The faculty sponsor will be sent an email when the student application is submitted, asking whether they have reviewed it and approve it.
