More Info


The Undergraduate Research Assistant Program pairs inexperienced students with faculty who are in need of assistance on their own research projects. In doing so, students who do not have sufficient research experience to design and carry out their own URG project gain first-hand mentored knowledge of research practices in their discipline, while faculty who would not otherwise be able to hire Research Assistants (RAs) get help with their own projects. Faculty can apply with a particular student(s) in mind, or the Office of Undergraduate Research can assist in finding a student for them by running a search.

1) To help students from any discipline who have no prior research experiences and are not yet ready to do independent research to get training and mentoring in the research methods of their chosen discipline
2) To support opportunities in the arts, humanities, journalism, and non-laboratory based social sciences where funding for research experiences is uncommon
3) To support pairings of residential college faculty and students.

URAP applications are written and submitted by Faculty Mentors, not by students. Students looking for a Research Assistant position should reach out to faculty they’d like to work with well ahead of the deadline. If you would like help figuring out how to find and contact faculty, you are encouraged to come talk with an advisor
