Funding Opportunities

Koret Research Scholarship – $1500 Scholarships for Undergraduate Research! Applications Due November 30th. Become a Koret Scholar! Apply now!

The Divisions of Undergraduate Education and Student Success with funding from the Koret Foundation will award 50 Undergraduate Research Scholarships of $1,500 plus expenses for students from any discipline.

Scholarship Eligibility:

  • The applicant must be an enrolled UCSC undergraduate student in good academic standing. Applicants will be required to provide access to educational records for verification purposes.
  • The applicant must have a UCSC faculty (or, in some cases, graduate student) mentor for the project. Applicants will be required to submit a letter of support from the mentor.
  • Project must be completed prior to the student’s graduation.

Evaluation Criteria:

  • Scientific, scholarly, and/or creative merit of the proposed research project.
  • Evidence of ability to carry out the proposed research project (as shown by letter of support, transcripts, proposal narrative, and project timeline).

Koret Scholars are expected to work with their mentors in 2- or 5-credit independent studies. Koret Undergraduate Research Scholarships are intended to enable students to participate in a research project outside of their courses in collaboration with faculty and/or graduate students. As such, scholarships will not be awarded for assignments in regular courses but new research projects might be developed out of previous coursework. Projects can be student- or faculty-originated, by means of independent study, over 1 or 2 quarters.
