The Center for Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities (URSCA) announces the Spring 2015 Call for Proposals for URSCA Program Grants. The Program Grants are funded through a Growth Agenda for Wisconsin grant for the purpose of promoting and enhancing the use of URSCA and supporting its integration across the curriculum at UW-Superior.
We hope you will consider applying.
Our campus has adopted the Council on Undergraduate Research's (CUR's) definition of undergraduate research: An inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline. The Arts and Humanities Division of CUR adds some more specifics to the definition:
Undergraduate research in the arts and humanities is student-driven, faculty-mentored inquiry, scholarly investigation, and/or creative activity. The undergraduate researcher's work may contribute to outcomes including, but not limited to, individual or collaborative analytical writing; oral presentation; small analytical products; works of visual art; compilations of scholarship; exhibits; musical compositions; plays; performance; public scholarship; and/or peer-reviewed publication. Whatever the research product, its value is generally weighed by standards specific to experts in the field, whether jurors, editors,or reviewers.
UW-Superior generally subscribes to the definitions offered by CUR. The phrase "undergraduate research, creative and scholarly activity" (URSCA) is used to provide more inclusive language.
