Research, arts, and senior synthesis projects regardless of discipline can all make use of the UAR Student Grants


UAR Student Grants support Stanford undergraduate projects.

  • Small Grants
    • monthly deadlines throughout the AY (October - May)
  • Majors Grants
    • The 2018-2019 application deadline is March 11, 2019 at 11:59pm.
  • Conference Grants
    • monthly deadlines throughout the AY (October - May)


First step:

The first step in taking on any independent project is to spend some time reflecting on your intellectual interests, questions, and goals. This is not only the first step – it’s a critical, continuous process!

Whether you are preparing to contact a potential mentor for the first time or already working on your honors thesis, it’s valuable to spend time thinking about what motivates your project.


You may not accept more than one of the following in a single academic year:

  • UAR Major Grant
  • UAR Chappell Lougee Scholarship
  • Haas Summer Fellowship
  • Departmental summer research assistantship
  • Other full-time summer fellowship or internship.

Each of these opportunities represents significant time commitments and is intended to support a unique student’s full-time effort on a project.
