Undergraduate Research Fellowship

The Undergraduate Research Fellowship (URF) provides up to $1,000 in support for specific scholarly research projects conducted by full-time UT undergraduate students enrolled in any department. Sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research with support from the academic colleges, these fellowships are intended to cover costs associated with academic research projects proposed and written by student applicants and undertaken with the supervision of a university tenured or tenure-track faculty member, lecturer, senior lecturer or full-time research scientist/engineer. Some restrictions apply.

Once you have submitted your documents, your faculty supervisor will be forwarded an email to submit their recommendation letter and approval of the proposal. If you do not know your faculty member’s EID and email, you can find them through the directory.
