Undergraduate Research Enhancement Program

About the program

The College of Arts and Sciences is pleased to announce the continuation of the Undergraduate Research Enhancement Program (UREP) to promote undergraduate research. 

The awards are intended to enhance the number of undergraduates involved in research and to help faculty with the costs associated with including undergraduates in their research. To be eligible, undergraduates must be enrolled in an independent study course for the purpose of conducting undergraduate research. The College will provide the faculty sponsor with up to $1,000 during that semester to defer research expenses.

Application Deadline

For Spring semester courses The deadline to submit an application for Spring 2023 has been extended to December 5, 2022.

Summer and Fall courses The deadline to submit an application for Summer/Fall 2023 is May 1, 2023.
