Research and Innovation Grants

The University of Rochester offers Research and Innovation Grants (RIG) to selected incoming first-year students so that they can carry out an independent research project sometime during their four years at Rochester. Until they declare a major, a Humanities Center mentor serves as the student's advisor. The Center offers many activities geared to undergraduate researchers to which the RIG students are invited.

See the Office of Undergraduate Research for more information.
