Students should discuss this with their faculty mentors, because it is rare for students to be able to secure funding on their own. However, students can and should bring this up with potential or current faculty mentors and offer to help secure funding.
Faculty are encouraged to talk with the SDSU Research Foundation and explore options with various professional organizations that may support undergraduate research.
