Undergraduate Research Program

Traditional Undergraduate Research Program

These programs were established to give motivated undergraduates a chance to participate in research and scholarly activity in order to further their career and educational goals. Please contact the URP committee at with any questions.


Proposals are now being accepted! The annual deadline is April 15 by 5 p.m.

Visit the proposal program guidelines and application page.

Undergraduate students wishing to participate in the Undergraduate Research Program must submit a proposal. For more information on submitting proposals, please visit the program guidelines and application page.

Each participating student will receive a $1,500 stipend payable in three increments.  For purposes of the awards, research is broadly defined and may include investigations of a cultural or historical question, documentary or production arts, as well as laboratory or field research more typically associated with the science or engineering disciplines.

Please note: students should develop their proposals with the assistance of their Research Supervisor/Mentor. The Proposal must follow the guidelines.

RAMP Program

The Undergraduate Research Committee is pleased to offer a new program called RAMP (Research Assistant Mentorship Program). RAMP is designed to fund small research teams consisting of faculty and undergraduates (primarily freshmen and sophomores). Undergraduates to be funded do not have to be identified prior to submitting the proposal.

SURF Program

The Undergraduate Research Committee is pleased to offer a new program called Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF). SURF is designed to provide an intensive, in-depth research experience to a small number of Montana Tech undergraduate students. Projects will span 8-10 weeks.
