Welcome to URSA (Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and the Arts). This site is a resource for undergradutes and faculty looking to participate in or implement undergraduate research. The sidebar should lead you to helpful information about research and provide opportunities for research in all areas. Currently OSURF is in the process of undergoing a significant upating, so content here will be reformatting over the weeks ahead. New initiatives relative to undergraduate research are described and linked below. If you have any questions regarding these items, please contact Kevin Ahern at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-737-8906
Undergraduate Research Opportunities - Though the period for applying for the URSA ENGAGE program is over, there are still MANY opportunities for students to do undergraduate research at OSU. Interested? First, watch the video HERE, then contact Kevin Ahern at email@example.com
URISC for Fall, Winter, and/or Spring - The Research Office is accepting applications for the Undergraduate Research, Innovation, Scholarship and Creativity (URISC) program for Fall, Winter and/or Spring term(s) 2013-14. This program supports undergraduate research activities from all academic disciplines within the University. Program description and application: http://oregonstate.edu/research/incentive/urisc. Information: Debbie Delmore at firstname.lastname@example.org. URISC is program of undergraduate research that pays students to work under the guidance of a faculty mentor. It requires a student to apply WITH a faculty mentor, so planning is important, given the May 13 deadline. If you have good grades and want assistance connecting with a faculty mentor, please contact Kevin Ahern at email@example.com. Students already working with a faculty member who haven't had previous URISC funding should consider applying. By the way, URISC-START is NOT URISC, so you can apply for URISC even if you've had URISC-START funding previously. Submission Deadline: May 13.
The Council on Undergraduate Research hosts a Registry of Undergraduate Researchers. The purpose of this registry is to facilitate matchmaking between undergraduates who have research experience and a desire to pursue an advanced degree, with graduate schools seeking high quality students who are well prepared for research. The Registry is open to students and graduate schools in the fields of Anthropology/Archaeology, Arts/Humanities, Biology/Biochemistry, Business, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Economics, Education, Engineering, English and Linguistics, Environmental Studies, Geosciences, Health Professions, History, Journalism and Communications, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/ Astronomy, Political Science, Psychology, Social Work and Sociology.
Any undergraduate may go to http://www.cur.org/projects_and_services/registry/student_register/ to fill out a simple curriculum vitae form. There is no charge to the student and records will be made available to bona fide Graduate Schools or research programs that contract with CUR for this service.
