UBRP Ambassadors

The UBRP Ambassadors aim to strengthen the UBRP community by providing a number of opportunities for students to interact with each other and with others outside the UBRP community. Get involved with the UBRP Ambassadors. Find a list of upcoming events here.

UBRP Funding Opportunities

UBRP has the following scholarships available for active students in the program:

UBRP Travel Award

These awards are designed to support current UBRP, ASPET, EHS-TRUE, and NACP students in presenting their research at a scientific conference. A typical travel award amount is $500. Applications must be received at least one month prior to your conference. See the application for more information and the full set of requirements.  E-mail the completed application and supplementary documents to Jennifer at for review.

UBRP Basic Needs Scholarship

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, UBRP is able to distribute several small (~$100) scholarships to students in our programs who are in financial need due to COVID-19 or other hardships, to help cover basic needs (food, utilities, transportation, medical expenses, etc.). Scholarships will be distributed directly to students’ Bursar’s accounts; recipients should be aware that if they have any outstanding dues with the Bursar’s Office, the scholarship will first be applied to those dues. To apply, simply e-mail Jennifer Cubeta at with a short description of your financial need and how the funds would benefit you (2-3 sentences). Recipients will be selected based on level of financial need; if approved, disbursement of the scholarship is anticipated to take place within a month’s time.

Applications for Travel Awards and Basic Needs Scholarships are accepted on a rolling basis; funds are limited, and decisions will be made on a first-come first served basis.

UBRP Galileo Circle Scholarship

These $1,000 scholarships support outstanding UBRP participants who are majors in the College of Science.  Information and applications for the UBRP Galileo Circle Scholarship will be e-mailed directly to eligible applicants in the spring semester.


  • Undergraduate Research Ambassadors can offer guidance for preparing research posters and presentations, and in giving friendly feedback on “Mock Talks,” where students can practice their presentation to a supportive person and receive feedback on what they are doing well and what steps they can take to improve their presentation.
