The Office of Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, & the Arts (Office of URSA) is excited to announce this year’s call for faculty submissions for the 2022-2023 URSA Engage Program, which is designed to provide first- and second-year students, as well as transfer students in their first year at OSU, opportunities to pursue research or a creative activity under the guidance of an OSU faculty mentor.
The faculty summary form can be found at this link or by visiting https://beav.es/iHV
Below is an overview of the URSA Engage Program. More detailed information about eligibility and deadlines can be found on our website.
- Faculty submit the mentor summary form by Friday, October 14, 2022 at 11:59pm.
- The opportunities submitted by faculty will be posted on our website for students to view on October 17.
- Students will read through mentor summaries and fill out a form that will be emailed to faculty mentors they are interested in working with.
- Faculty and students will then discuss shared interests and whether they want to work together on a project either in-person or via Zoom. We encourage faculty to host group session(s) to chat with students prior to allowing them to apply.
- Faculty will ultimately decide which student(s) they will allow to move forward with an application to the URSA Engage Program.
- Students who have secured a mentor will then apply to the URSA Engage Program. The Office of URSA will evaluate student applications and students will be notified of acceptances mid-January of 2023.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We appreciate your partnership and willingness to mentor students early in their careers at OSU!
