Introducing Stanford undergraduates to the excitement of interdisciplinary research at the frontiers of knowledge is essential for training a new generation to participate in discovery. The Bio-X Undergraduate Summer Research Program (Bio-X USRP) provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to conduct hands-on research, build awareness of interdisciplinary areas, and network with Bio-X faculty. This formative experience influences their subsequent work at Stanford and beyond.

Stanford undergraduate students are eligible to participate and should be in communication with Bio-X affiliated faculty to decide on an interdisciplinary project that may be supported by this award. The Bio-X Undergraduate Summer Research Program awards a total of $7,500 to the student for a 10-week period of full-time research during the summer quarter and $1,000 to their mentoring faculty to support their research.
