Undergraduate Research and Innovation (URI) Program

The Undergraduate Research and Innovation (URI) program has evolved as a significant part of the education and research experience at NJIT.  NJIT is pleased to announce the Undergraduate Research and Innovation Phase-1 and Phase-2 Student Grant (URISG) program to provide students awards to pursue research or develop proof-of-concept prototypes. Funds can only be used to order project supplies and prototyping through the Office of Undergraduate Research and Innovation. Awardees will present their progress reports in future URI workshops.  Students may also apply their extended proposal to Provost Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowships for summer stipend awards to continue working during the summer. ​Students are also encouraged to participate in the TechQuest, Newark Innovation Acceleration Challenge, NSF funded Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) and other programs listed below.
