Sparking and Fostering Curiosity
The UW-Superior Center for Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity (URSCA) promotes, recognizes and celebrates undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activity in all academic disciplines. We provide support, resources, and opportunities for students, faculty and staff.
Summer Undergraduate Research Program
The Summer Undergraduate Research program provides a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to spend the summer working on a research or scholarly project with the support of a faculty or staff mentor. Students submit proposals for either a developmental project or a fellowship. After a competitive review process, chosen applicants receive a stipend to support them while they complete their project during a 10-week period in the summer. Depending on the size of the project, students are awarded either $1,750 or $3,500. Mentors also receive a stipend to provide guidance and support to the student over the summer.
Typically, the schedule is as follows:
- January: Call for proposals
- February: Information and help sessions
- Early March: Application deadline
- April: Awards announced
- June-August: Students complete their projects
- October: Campus symposium
For more information, contact the URSCA team.
The UW-Superior Foundation has been a consistent funder for the Summer Undergraduate Research program. They continue to provide consistent support for the students and program.
