Funding

Discover Grant for Undergraduate Summer Research Funding

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 Undergraduate Summer Research 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, research funding 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

If you are a staff member, graduate student, or faculty member who is interested in applying for funding for either a group of yet-to-be-determined students or to support student research during the regular academic year, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Research at (585) 276-5306 or undergradresearch@ur.rochester.edu. All applications for summer research funding should be completed by the student using the online application system.
