Application and Program Fees

Application Fees & Fee Waiver

Application Fees for Research Explorations and UF Student Science Training Program can be paid by following this link.  Checks can also be mailed to our office.  However, please note that you will not be able to submit your online application until our office has received and processed your payment. Checks must be made out to the University of Florida with the student’s name and the program(s) they are applying for in the memo line.  The application fee is $35 for these programs.  If you are financially unable to pay the $35 application fee, are a Florida resident, and qualify for free and reduced lunch, please fill out this form to request that your application fee be waived.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is only available to Florida residents attending an in-state school. Students who have a need for financial aid in order to attend a UF CPET program may apply by completing and returning this form during the UF CPET application process.  Forms can be faxed (352-392-2344), mailed, or emailed to the program(s) you are applying for.  See individual program pages for corresponding email addresses.

Admission to the program is not dependent upon ability to pay. Aid requests will be evaluated on the basis of the applicant’s financial need, the amount of funds available for scholarships, and the criteria set by the donor.  For accepted UF SSTP students, Financial Aid applicants may have the $500 non-refundable deposit waived.

There is no set deadline for the Financial Aid Application, however only the completed applications received at the time each funding agency is granting scholarships will be considered. Therefore, please submit your UF CPET Application and Financial Aid Application as early as possible.  Scholarship recipients may be required to write thank you letters, to provide a copy of their final projects to be submitted to funding agencies as requested, and to provide updates to the UF CPET Office as requested.

Program Fees

Links to pay program fees will become available after invitations have been sent.  Payments can made through online payments at Eventbrite or check/money order only.  Checks must be made out to University of Florida with the students name a program in the memo line.
