The University Scholars Program introduces undergraduate students at the University of Florida to the exciting world of academic research.
In the program, students work one-on-one with UF faculty on selected research projects. Through this initiative, students will take away an understanding of and appreciation for the scholarly method.
A competition is held each spring within participating colleges and academic centers for the University Scholars awards that includes a $1750 stipend. The program will consist of undertaking a full research project, under the guidance of a faculty member. The University Scholars Program serves as an exceptional capstone to the academic careers of UF students. Students from all disciplines are selected through a competitive process to participate in this program.
Students apply to the University Scholars Program through the college of their mentor. Students with research projects that have an AI component are encouraged to apply through the AI Scholars application portal. UF Online students are encouraged to apply through the UF Online application portal.
