The Office of Student Scholarship, Creative Activities, and Research (OSCAR) is now accepting applications for the spring 2012 Undergraduate Research Scholars Program (URSP), formerly known as the Undergraduate Apprenticeship Program. The URSP provides the opportunity for undergraduate students and their faculty mentors to engage in original research or creative projects with one another. Accepted students are given a stipend that enables them to undertake twelve 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.
Students and their mentors are each required to submit an application to the program, which can be found below. All application materials must be received by Wednesday, November 30, to be considered for the Spring 2012 URSP.
