The Undergraduate Research Fellowships are intended to defray research costs for students conducting independent research projects under the guidance of a professor. Any advanced undergraduate researcher--typically juniors or seniors--at Rutgers-New Brunswick pursuing independent research projects with faculty guidance is eligible to apply. Funding is intended for consumable supplies: that is, supplies specific to the research project. Funding cannot be used for meals, living expenses, tuition, or equipment that will be used beyond the duration of the research project.
Proposals must include a project overview, a personal statement, proposed budget, and a letter of endorsement from the professor guiding the research. Please note that many proposals receive partial funding, and we encourage students to seek funding from multiple sources. Fellowship recipients are required to share their research with the university community at the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium, and to participate in Aresty's research presentation workshops in advance of the Symposium.
***Please note that due to COVID-19, funds will be limited for this fellowship cycle.
