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.
Summer UTRA projects must begin after spring Commencement and the duration of the project must span a period of ten consecutive weeks. We expect both faculty and student collaborators to find a mutually agreeable period between the Tuesday following Commencement and at least one week before the beginning of the fall semester.
