For the most part undergraduates will be responsible for sourcing funding through the school. There are many grants available that can assist with research needs; here is a good place to look first.
Senior Lab Members
Most grants require a PI status, which Meghan holds for the lab. Depending on the grant, graduate students and postdocs can also hold the PI status. Here and here are good starting points for grant-hunting. When you have found a grant, approve it with Meghan before moving forward.

- Take the signed form to the Cashier's Office (McNutt, 1st floor). Make sure to bring your Dartmouth ID. They will ask you what bills you want the cash in, so make sure you know how much you're paying each participant! (e.g. if you're paying each participant $10, don't ask for your cash in $20's.
- Note: the maximum amount you can request at once is $500. If you need more, you can replenish your cash once you run out.
