Started in 1997, Undergraduate Research Opportunity Stipends (UROS) give students an opportunity to be mentored by, and eventually collaborate with, an FSU professor. Students apply for the program at the end of their first year. If selected, they receive a yearly $1,000 stipend to assist the faculty member with an ongoing research project.
A unique feature of the UROS program is that students and faculty also receive a yearly stipend to travel to professional meetings. The student's work in the UROS project should form the basis for a senior thesis.
