Undergraduate Research Scholars


Application will open on 6/1/2019 at 12:00 AM.

Write and present an undergraduate thesis under faculty guidance as a team or an individual. Eligible students are invited to apply for the Undergraduate Research Scholars (URS) program each year between June and September.


Application Details

The application consists of two parts:

  1. Intent to Apply (Online Form on This Webpage)
  2. Completed Application Part 2 Template submitted to the Scholars Thesis Submittal System (STSS) that includes your:
    • Proposal
    • Research compliance questionnaire
    • Timeline

After completing both parts of the application, faculty advisors must approve the project through the STSS. LAUNCH: UGR staff will then review applications and send final acceptance notifications on a rolling basis through the first week of October.


TEAM APPLICATIONS: ALL team members must individually complete both part 1 and part 2 of the URS Application. We recommend that all team members submit both parts at the same time in a single sitting! Additionally, faculty advisors will have to individually approve each team member's application.
