URAP 2018

Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program (URAP)

The Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program (URAP) is a research funding program for undergraduates that have not received funding in the past. The program was started by the OUR&CI to encourage undergraduates to pursue research or creative projects in their field. This past summer the OUR&CI accepted 20 students to participate in the program. Below are a few students that were accepted into the 2018 cohort.
