Application Details

Two-Part Application

The URS application consists of two parts:

  1. Part 1: Intent to Apply (YOU ARE HERE)
  2. Part 2: Completed application template submitted to the Scholars Thesis Submittal System (STSS) that includes:
    • Proposal
    • **NEW** Research compliance acknowledgement
    • **NEW** COVID-19 contingency plan

Team Applications

  • Undergraduate Research Scholars teams may consist of 2-5 students working with the same faculty advisor.
  • ALL team members must individually submit both parts of the application. However, the document team members submit during Part 2 of the application must be identical. We recommend that all team members submit both parts at the same time in a single sitting.
  • Note: Faculty advisors must individually approve each team member's application.
