The Undergraduate Research Assistantship Program (URAP) is another URSCI initiative. URSCI funds four to six undergraduate research assistantships per semester.

Undergraduate Research Assistant stipends fund students in assisting and collaborating on faculty-guided research or creative projects. Students will learn while supporting faculty in their research and creative activity. Faculty will mentor research assistants, teaching them relevant disciplinary skills and responsible conduct of research. Students may work up to 150 hours per semester and projects may last for more than one semester. This program is intended to provide students a substantive intellectual experience. Mentoring is an important part of what makes a successful application. Assistants can help in areas such as:

  • Library research
  • Data collection
  • Data analysis
  • Manuscript preparation

Students receive $10 per hour for up to 150 hours ($1,500) during a 15-week semester.

All full-time undergraduate students who have attained at least sophomore status and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 are eligible.
