The “Falcon Grants” program was begun in the Fall of 2007-08 as a component of the UWRF Differential Tuition initiative supported by the student body and provides funding for students from throughout the campus for undergraduate Research, Scholarly and Creative Activities (RSCA). To date, more than 250 students have received funding to engage in and/or present their undergraduate RSCA from various fields across the campus.
