Funding for on-campus research
Many students, especially those who are new to research, volunteer their time or receive academic credit. However, there are some sources of financial support:
- The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program provides a stipend of up to $6,000 per year, $1,500 in research supply funds, and the opportunity to present results at research conferences.
- The Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program offers a summer research stipend, room and board, professional development workshops and the opportunity to attend research conferences.
- The Senior Summer Scholars program provides a $3000 stipend for rising seniors engaged in undergraduate research.
- The Honors Research Grant, sponsored by the University Honors College, consists of a $500 award that can be used for to defray research expenses of students enrolled in Departmental Honors programs.
- Faculty research grants (at the discretion of the faculty mentor).
- Federal work study: A small number of laboratory positions are usually available to those who qualify.
