The Undergraduate Research Mentorship Program aims to encourage and support undergraduate participation in faculty research in A&S departments. Administered by a faculty committee, the URM Program is an opportunity for rising juniors to cooperate actively with faculty mentors, learning firsthand about the natural integration of research and teaching. All Arts and Science students with 50-75 hours of course work and at least a 3.25 GPA are eligible to apply for a mentorship for the summer term, for the fall or spring semester, or for the academic year. Questions about eligibility should be addressed to Dean Tarkow.
Students may apply for a URM for any one of four different periods:
1) Summer, 2) Fall, 3) Spring, 4) Academic Year.
NOTE: Students who have received prior URM are ineligible for a second award.
- Friday, February 22, 2013: Deadline for completed applications for the Summer 2013, Fall 2013, and academic year 2013-2014 competitions
