The college is once again pleased to invite students and faculty to participate in a college-wide Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program (URAP) for the Fall 2013 and/or Spring 2014 semesters.
Through this program, faculty engage undergraduates in their research through one-to-one mentorships that stimulate student interest in pursuing graduate education.
The college and university have a strong interest in engaged learning activities. Undergraduate participation in research is one of the central elements of engaged learning. This program is designed to encourage a broader involvement of students and faculty not only within a given major, but also, where appropriate, to encourage and support mentorships that involve faculty members with qualified, highly motivated students outside the major.
The goals of this program are:
|Feb. 11||Faculty submit proposals to department chair|
|Feb. 18||Chairs submit URAP proposals to email@example.com|
|Apr. 8||Approval received|
|Apr. 8-15||Proposal topics posted in Northern Star|
|Apr. 29 (Deadline Extended)||Student deadline to submit URAP applications|
|May 6||Student applications forwarded to faculty
|May 17||Student/Faculty contracts due|
