The Office of Undergraduate Research and Education Abroad are proud to co-sponsor undergraduate research abroad. Undergraduates must be conducting research for a minimum of 8 weeks and be nominated by a faculty member to be eligible. This scholarship pays up to $5,000 to a University of Kentucky full-time undergraduate student to cover the costs of a well-defined research project abroad during the summer term for approximately 8 weeks. The student applying for the scholarship must be highly recommended by a UK faculty mentor with whom they have already done research. It is assumed the UK faculty mentor will recommend the abroad faculty mentor to the student and help broker the arrangement. The deadline to submit all UGRAS 2016 materials is March 4, 2016. Please send questions to
