MIT's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)

Options: Awards and Special Funds

There are a number of named funds and awards, many of which are awarded through the direct funding process and some of which are fellowships or prizes organized by departments. UROP direct funding special funds are honorary and do not increase existing stipends. Rather, they substitute award funding for general UROP support.

You can apply for those funds distributed through the UROP direct funding process by indicating the names of the funds for which you would like to be considered in your Direct Funding application. Details are enclosed within the descriptions for each fund.

Fellowships or prizes will have different application guidelines and tend to confer a certificate and/or special funding. Such awards are frequently made at the end of a semester or summer when the quality of research can be assessed.

If you have any questions or wish to have further information about specific award guidelines, please feel free to contact UROP staff.

Available special awards and funds are organized type (e.g. UROP direct funding awards or departmental prizes/fellowships).

The MIT student chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) is devoted to serving the MIT community in utilizing bioengineering resources around campus and around the world. A second goal is to encourage/reward student participation in this field. One way we hope to do this is our BMES-Johnson & Johnson Excellence in Biomedical Engineering Research Prize. Thanks to the collaborative support of the Division of Bioengineering and Environmental Health at MIT, and generous funding from our corporate and foundation partners, BMES and our faculty selection committee will award up to 6 of these prizes each year to MIT bioengineering students for outstanding research conducted at the undergraduate and Masters of Engineering (M.Eng.) degree levels. The prize will consist of a cash prize and a grant to cover all travel expenses for a trip to the annual BMES national conference. There, the winners get the chance to represent MIT and compete for recognition at the national level.

Application information: See the BMES website for complete details including deadlines and application guidelines at: http://stuff.mit.edu:8001/activities/bmes/JJprize.html.

Goetze Memorial Prize

A fund was established in the Department of Earth, Atmosphere, and Planetary Sciences to perpetuate the memory of Prof. Christopher Goetze, an experimental geophysicist who died in 1977. Since Prof. Goetze was the Department's UROP Coordinator for six years, the fund provides for an annual award to recognize outstanding undergraduate research in the earth and planetary sciences.

The undergraduate prize is for research in the general area of the earth sciences, including projects investigating solid earth, ocean, atmosphere, or planetary questions. The selection committee will look for qualities which marked Goetze's own work: innovative experimental design, care in observation or measurement, sensitive application of experimental results to research problems, and a firm basis in fundamental principles. Studies in departments other than Earth, Atmosphere, and Planetary Sciences qualify if the results are clearly applicable to earth science. Research performed for a UROP project, a senior thesis, or an independent research course is eligible for this award.

How to Apply: An undergraduate who would like to be considered for a Goetze prize is asked to submit the completed paper to the Education Office by May 1. Work completed at any time during the current academic year is acceptable. Student advisors may also wish to make nominations by notifying the Education Office by May 1 of the student name and paper title and following notification promptly with a copy of the paper. A short oral presentation of results is required.

Contact: EAPS Education Office staff, Carol Sprague, 54-912, x3-3381 or Vicki McKenna, 54-910, x3-3380
