OSCAR is now accepting applications for the spring 2012 URSP.
One of the goals of the Students as Scholars initiative is to increase the opportunities for student to participate in undergraduate research, creative activities, and scholarship. The Undergraduate Research Scholars Program (formerly known as the Undergraduate Apprenticeship Program) provides the opportunity for undergraduate students and their faculty mentors to engage in original research or creative projects with one another, and we are expanding this program to support additional projects.
Accepted students are given a stipend that enables them to undertake nine hours of research-related activities each week during the semester, in addition to receiving travel priority for applications submitted to the Undergraduate Student Travel Fund. A fund of $500 will also be available to mentors to support the student’s research project.
For more information about the URSP, please read the URSP FAQs.
Students and their mentors are BOTH required to submit an application to the program, which can be found below. All application materials must be received by Wednesday, November 30th, to be considered for the spring 2012 URSP.
*You may open these links as many times as you like, but your application will only be saved once you click on Submit at the bottom of the page. The application cannot be edited once it is submitted, but you can submit a new application and replace the older one if needed.
