STARS Application

2021 STARS Application

The STARS program provides a housing allowance of $4,500 that makes it easier for College of Engineering undergraduates to work in Boston alongside College of Engineering faculty over the summer, performing research to create solutions to some of society’s most challenging problems.

College of Engineering undergraduates engaged in a faculty-mentored, full-time research experience during the summer may apply for the STARS program. To be eligible, students may:

  1. Receive research funding through the UROP program.
  2. Be hired into a paid research position from a College of Engineering faculty member. The position must be for at least 35 hours per week for at least 10 weeks.

STARS participants may not take summer courses. Students whose permanent residence is within commuting distance to BU may not qualify for the housing support provided by STARS.

Students should complete this form only after consulting with their faculty mentor. Applications are due by March 4, 2021.

The STARS application deadline has passed.
