Undergraduate Student Funding Opportunities

The Institute for a Sustainable Earth is proud to participate in the Global Sustain+Ability Scholars program, which trains and supports rising young professionals from diverse backgrounds, disciplines, and worldviews. ISE and the Office of Student Scholarship, Creative Activities, and Research (OSCAR) sponsor this opportunity for Mason’s brightest undergraduate students from under-represented groups to work with leading scientists on critical sustainability challenges that face communities and environments in the future.

This is more than an internship. The Global Sustain+Ability Scholars program constitutes a professional community working on global sustainable development challenges. This effort spans cultures, borders and disciplines.

Students are provided a stipend and travel expenses are covered. Applications are accepted in the first quarter of each calendar year. To learn more, visit https://www.gsscholar.org/apply/.

OSCAR Federal Work-Study Research Assistantships are for students who are interested in working with faculty on a project, and have demonstrated financial need. We offer a RA positions in almost every program across campus, and you can search our current openings. It’s a great way to meet faculty, and learn about the methods in your field while earning money!

The Undergraduate Research Scholars Program is a competitive program designed to give undergraduates an authentic research, creative, or scholarly experience under the guidance of a mentor. You, (with the help of your mentor), design and implement the project, and present the results at the end of the project.
