Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program
The University's URAP program is designed to facilitate opportunities for students to build closer professional connections with their instructors through their involvement in a collaborative research experience. Faculty and academic staff are supported by the Provost's Office to engage undergraduates in research/creative artistry activities in one-on-one mentorships. Each student is rewarded with a stipend after the completion of their research.
The goals of the program are:
- To create and expand opportunities for undergraduates and faculty/academic staff to work as collaborators in the search for knowledge; to involve students in the creation of that knowledge and to acknowledge and celebrate the accomplishments of undergraduate researchers.
- To foster critical thinking and active learning in students.
- To create a better understanding of what research and creative artistry entail and why people do it.
- To further demonstrate and reinforce the synergistic relationship between teaching and scholarship.
The University seeks proposals for collaborative research every semester. Applications are submitted to your Dean/Division office.
