Wyoming Research Scholars Program

The Wyoming Research Scholars Program is a university-wide UW Science Initiative program that pairs undergraduate students with faculty mentors to participate in cutting-edge research starting as early as their freshman year. The program is open to incoming freshman students, incoming transfer students, and current UW undergraduate students majoring in STEM fields. Please visit the WRSP website for more information on the program and its requirements: Wyoming Research Scholars Program

Awards include funds for:
• student salary (paid at $12.00/hour) while working on research projects
• research support (ex. lab supplies, data processing, research travel expenses, etc.)
• travel to present findings at meetings/conferences

Grant amounts vary based on student proposals. Maximum award amounts can be found on the WRSP website at: Award and Program Details

The WRSP accepts applications for students without set projects (generally incoming freshman, sophomores, and incoming transfer students) as well as students with established projects and mentors (generally incoming juniors and seniors). This opportunity is only available to undergraduate students seeking a first bachelor’s degree.
