URP's MyResearch website is a program that allows students to browse through and apply for research projects that are listed by faculty mentors. Matching with a student or mentor on this program does NOT guarantee URP funding as listed projects may not be associated with any of our offered programs. If you wish to receive funding for your project, please correspond with the project's mentor to decide which of our programs to apply for under the "RAP" or "Student & Mentor Programs" tabs at the top of this page.
Check out our handy MyResearch guides that explain the pairing process:
The Undergraduate Research Program (URP) is a high impact practice that gives students the opportunity to apply their knowledge outside of the classroom. This can be in the form of working alongside a mentor as a student researcher, or creating independent, student-led project with a mentor's help.
URP offers a variety of programs aimed to connect our students with faculty mentors and provide them with enriching research opportunities in their field of interest. The Research Apprenticeship Program (RAP) specifically is aimed specifically at Freshmen, Sophomores, and first-year Transfer students as an introduction to research.
