Undergraduates Pursuing Research in Science and Engineering (UPRISE)
The UPRISE program provides summer fellowships for undergraduates to conduct research under the guidance of a faculty mentor. The fellowship includes a stipend and a series of informational workshops on career preparation, but may not be combined with summer coursework. The application deadline typically falls near the beginning of spring semester. Please consult the UPRISE for more information.
Undergraduates from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply for Turner scholarships that provide scholarship aid and guidance from a faculty mentor. Please consult the Turner scholars website for more information.
