For Students

Undergraduate Teaching and Research Awards provide a unique opportunity for students in any discipline and in their first through fourth year to:

  • Collaborate with faculty on important research or teaching projects
  • Develop problem-solving and research skills, as well as a more comprehensive understanding of the research subject
  • Explore an issue or topic of interest
  • Have an impact on a Brown course or in a larger field of study

To find a research opportunity: search the list of Faculty Listed Opportunities. If a student has already identified a project and a faculty mentor, you may apply directly for an UTRA to support that opportunity.

2022 SPRING UTRA projects must begin after the first day of classes and the duration of the project must span at least ten weeks.  We expect both faculty and student collaborators to find a mutually agreeable period between the first day of class and the last week of May.

Please see the SPRINT page for information about criteria and eligibility for UTRA Faculty Collaborations and all SPRINT awards.
