Discover Grants for Undergraduate Research

A quality undergraduate research experience fosters intellectual maturity in students and provides them with useful insights for academic and career path decisions. Undergraduate research develops problem-solving skills and promotes the integration of what students learn in the classroom.

The Discover Grant program aims to increase and enhance undergraduate research opportunities for University of Rochester undergraduates. While the vast majority of funds support individual summer research experiences for undergraduate students, Discover Grant proposals can be submitted by any University of Rochester:

  • Matriculated undergraduate
  • Faculty member (including research faculty)
  • Graduate student
  • Staff member who is acting as research mentor for undergraduates
