Undergraduate Research in Stanford Departments, Programs and Research Centers

Many Stanford departments and programs sponsor an undergraduate research program that provides financial support for students to work with Stanford professors on faculty-designed research projects.  Programs generally take place over the summer, but many support research during the regular academic year as well. 

For any Departmental Program, students must apply directly to departments and programs, rather than through VPUE.  For summer programs, deadlines are often in the Winter Quarter.  Program deadlines and specifics are available at the links below or via contacting the department or program directly.

Can't find a relevant department listed below? Reach out to the Student Services Officers in your department of interest to learn about ongoing research.

Need help with your independent project?

All students should schedule a meeting with their Undergraduate Advising Director (UAD) as they write their proposal. UADs are well-versed with all VPUE Undergraduate Research grants.
