Applications are now being accepted for the Spring 2018 Undergraduate Research Fellowships, which provide up to $1,000 to support expenses for independent research or creative activity in any major.
Sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research with support from the academic colleges, URF awards cover costs associated with academic research projects proposed and written by student applicants and undertaken with the supervision of a faculty member. Awards are given to multiple students in the fall and spring through the Office of Undergraduate Research.
The spring 2018 URF deadline is Monday, Jan. 22. Students conducting independent research are invited to learn more about the award (including the application process, eligibility, and writing tips) and access the online application. You can also find out more about other sources for student research funding on the OUR scholarships page.
To learn more about the process and hear tips for writing your own application, attend our URF info sessions Tuesday, Jan. 16 and Wednesday, Jan. 17 from 3-4 p.m. in FAC 328.
