• Students in the program are expected to engage with their research projects for a total of 75 hours. Typically, we ask that students engage with their research for 5 hrs/week for 15 weeks (the middle of winter term 2022 to the end of spring term 2022).
  • Students are required to meet with their mentor at least once a week, or 2-3 times a quarter if a graduate student or postdoc is available to meet with the student at least once a week. This can be done in person or virtually.
  • Students are required to present their work at either CUE (Celebrating Undergraduate Excellence) in May 2022 or at the SURS (Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium) in September 2022. Students also have the option to present at CUE in 2023, if necessary.

Faculty Mentor Summaries is a catalogue of faculty mentors that are interested in working with URSA Engage students. Potential research projects for students are listed under the faculty mentors name.

Please reach out to faculty members whose research is of interest to you. When you meet with them, let them know that you are interested in applying for the URSA Engage Program and that you are looking for a faculty mentor.

If a faculty mentor is interested in working with you, then discuss potential projects and apply to the URSA Engage Program under their mentorship.

If the faculty mentor is not able to work with you then you can reach out to a different mentor in the catalog. We offer URSA Engage coaching during drop-in advising hours if you would like help reaching out to a new mentor.

Applications are due December 13, 2021. 

Notification of awards will be sent out in late january.
