Funding Opportunities

Spring 2014 URSCA Program Grants

The Program Grants are funded through a Growth Agenda for Wisconsin grant for the purpose of promoting and enhancing the integration of URSCA across the curriculum at UW-Superior. The URSCA Committee will call for proposals twice each year in 2014 and 2015, once in the spring and once in the fall. The objectives of the grant program are to support faculty and staff development that builds capacity within programs; encourage integration of undergraduate research, scholarly and creative activities into courses and curriculum in all programs; promote collaboration across disciplines and between academic programs, non-academic programs and research institutions; and increase student opportunities for mentored research.
