Thesis Application


The 2017-2018 application opens June 1, 2017 and closes September 18, 2017.

Eligible students are invited to apply for the Undergraduate Research Scholars (URS) program each year between June and September. The application consists of two parts:

  1. Online Google Form
  2. Proposal and timeline through the Scholars Thesis Submittal System (STSS)

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