University of Delaware Research Apprenticeship Work-Study (UDRAW)
What is UDRAW?
The UDRAW program is a collaboration between the Undergraduate Research Program (URP), Student Financial Services, and faculty mentors to allow eligible, early-career students to use federal work-study funds in order to gain research experiences at the University of Delaware.
This program allows students to gain experience and make a meaningful contribution to a research project while learning about the process of research or scholarship in their field. Faculty will gain a full member of their research or creative team at no additional cost to the faculty mentor or department. The goal of the program is to help facilitate the relationship between low income, economically disadvantaged freshman and sophomore students who are just starting out in their fields of interests and research faculty at the University of Delaware.
Students will earn the minimum wage of $8.75. For more information on work study benefits as well as determining eligibility please visit the Student Financial Services Website at: https://www1.udel.edu/finaid/workstudy.html
The students’ funding will be covered through a combination of federal work study and URP. Federal work study support is 75% with the other 25% coming from the Undergraduate Research Program. State of Delaware work study support is 80% with the other 20% coming from URP. All students must be paid as a wage through UD time.
