UAR offers research grants to registered Stanford undergraduates.

The application for any student grant consists of:

  1. a student-authored project proposal, including a line-item budget
  2. a letter of support written by a qualified member of the Stanford faculty

UAR may also consult student transcripts as well as outside faculty reviewers. Proposals are judged on intellectual significance, rigor and feasibility of project design, and evidence of student preparedness. The program is competitive, and not all good proposals can be funded.

UAR provides advising support for students considering a research grant, including proposal writing and project design consultation and advice on administrative policies. Students can view sample proposals at the UAR office. For more information, see
