URSCI Undergraduate Research Assistant Program

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

Students assist full-time tenured or tenure-track undergraduate faculty with the faculty member’s own scholarship or creative work. The faculty member identifies a specific student, then submits an application describing the proposed scholarship and the qualifications of the student assistant.  The project must be intended to produce work that will contribute to a tenure or promotion portfolio.

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.

Applications for SUMMER AND FALL 2016 applications is April 15, 2016 by 5:00 P.M. CST. Contact URSCI Director David Perry for more information.

The Faculty member must complete the application in consultation with the student.
