 How to apply:

  • Review the evaluation rubric on the Hints for Applicants page to see how the URP selection committee will score your application. This is a new element that is being tested for Spring 2018.
  • Ask your prospective mentor to submit a letter indicating his or her recommendation for your participation in this project. This should be submitted through the “Add Support/ Recommendation Letter” link. This letter should describe the anticipated benefit to the mentor from your involvement in the project and the relationship between the project and ongoing work by the mentor.
  • One additional letter of support may be submitted by someone other than your faculty mentor, but this is optional.
