UROP Assistantships provide funding to students to partner with a faculty mentor to assist on a project. Students do not need to submit an original proposal to apply.

Student Grant amounts vary based on grant type and term, according to the following guidelines; summer grants are larger to account for additional cost of living. Check out Student Grant Payment for details.

  • Summer: $2,000
  • Academic Year: $1,000


The application period for Academic Year 2021-22 term funding closed in mid-February 2021. Proposals for Summer 2022 and Academic Year 2022-23 term funding will be due mid-February 2022, and the application form will be posted here.
