Each year, the Office of Honors Research funds up to twelve Burnett Research Scholars. These grants are sponsored by the Burnett Honors College and are open to all UCF freshmen and sophomores who meet the following eligibility criteria at the time of application. The purpose of the Burnett Research Scholars Grant is to provide formative research experiences to students early in their academic careers and to foster undergraduate research across the curriculum at UCF. 

All proposals go through a complete review process and the top proposals are selected for funding. Student recipients receive a grant of up to $2,000 and faculty mentors receive a grant of $1,000. Students who are receiving other forms of funding may still apply for the Burnett Research Scholars Grant, but this will be taken into consideration by the review committee when making their decisions. Also note that completed research or creative projects, such as Honors in the Major theses, are ineligible for funding. The Burnett Research Scholars Grant only supports current and ongoing research or creative projects at UCF.
