Elissa Baron (working with Alicia Allen) and David Shu (working with Cody Crosby) received undergraduate research fellowships (URFs), which includes a stipend of $1000.00 to aid their research. From the UT Office of the Vice President for Research:

The Undergraduate Research Fellowship (URF) program provides support for specific scholarly research projects conducted by full-time UT undergraduate students enrolled in any department. These fellowships are intended to cover costs associated with academic research projects proposed and written by student applicants and undertaken with the supervision of a university tenured or tenure-track faculty member, lecturer, senior lecturer or full-time research scientist/engineer.
