Participation Benefits

Participant Benefits

UCDGAP is a great opportunity for rising undergraduates to participate in research at UC Davis. Participants can select their own faculty mentor whose focus aligns with their own research interests. 

Undergraduate students who participate in UCDGAP will benefit from: 

  • A $4,500 stipend
  • A free GRE prep course
  • Professional development seminars and workshops
  • Hands-on research experience with a UC Davis faculty member
  • An opportunity to network with faculty and graduate students
  • An application fee waiver for UC Davis graduate program admissions applications 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the UCDGAP program will be held virtually for Summer 2021. When UCDGAP resumes in-person, participants will also have housing, meals, and travel covered, in addition to the opportunity to participate in industry and campus visits.
