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. Refer to Student Grant Payment for details.

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

Read the Student Grants Guide carefully before applying.
