For Students

Undergraduate Research Teams

Mizzou Advantage Undergraduate Research Teams (URTs) bring faculty, staff and students from across campus together to work on interdisciplinary problem-based research projects linked to one of the four Mizzou Advantage areas: Food for the Future, Media of the Future, One Health/One Medicine and Sustainable Energy. Students (working in teams of 3 to 5) will receive a $500 scholarship per semester (fall and spring) of involvement (up to 3 semesters per URT). NOTE: During summer semesters only, students will receive a $1,500 scholarship. The program hopes to inspire out-of-the-box collaborations among typically unrelated fields of study in order to explain phenomena, imagine solutions, and raise questions in ways not possible through the lens of any single discipline. Unconventional and unexpected pairings—engineering and art or computer science and psychology, for example—are welcome and encouraged.
