blog postsUndergraduate Research Apprentice Program (URAP @ UI)Oct 6, 2017 10:45 pm3 views Now in its third year of collaboration, the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) and the Graduate College offer the opportunity for first and second-year undergraduate students (including transfer students) to assist advanced graduate students (those who have completed all coursework requirements and are in the dissertation research stage) with their research projects. Through a one-on-one research experience with their graduate student mentor, undergraduate students will have the opportunity to learn what it means to do research, create knowledge, and produce scholarship. Undergraduate students will begin work with their mentors in Spring 2018. Undergraduate researchers will be given course credit (3 credit hours). Undergraduate students will attend regular weekly class meetings with OUR and Grad College instructors, as well as work one-on-one with their graduate mentors. Students will also complete a final project, consisting of a research poster, to be presented during “Undergraduate Research Week” sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR). If you have any questions about the application process, the office will be holding informational meetings on Friday October 13 and Wednesday October 18, from 3-3:50pm in Bevier Hall Room 166. Get tips on creating a good statement of interest, why you should participate, and get your questions answered. For more information and to apply, please see the post on website: https://uofi.illinois.edu/blog/view/6204/560664 Deadline for applications is Monday, October 30. Questions may be addressed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
