While undergraduates are eligible to be paid for research from faculty research grants or work-study grants, the majority of students receive pay through the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).

UROP  is a University-wide program that helps connect students with research opportunities and provides funding for research and travel expenses as well as student stipends. Funding is available during the academic year as well as in the summer.

Please note: students may not receive academic credit and funding in the same semester.
