Student Research Opportunities

Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA)

Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) are meant to stimulate students’ interest in research in the natural sciences and engineering. They are also meant to encourage a student to undertake graduate studies and pursue a research career in these fields. If students would like to gain research experience in an academic setting, these awards can provide them with financial support through their host university.
