Update on URAP

The College Undergraduate Research Awards Program (URAP) will not be offered in 2017-18. The College is developing a new undergraduate research initiative for later this year.  Students involved in the program will have opportunities to explore and be exposed to faculty-mentored research. We anticipate these will be non-credit/non-stipend activities.  Stay tuned for details.
This academic year, if you would like to apply for a funded, faculty-mentored research experience, visit the OSU Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and the Arts (URSA) web page; look at the Funding Opportunities: URSA Engage and URISC and more.
