Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program now accepting applications

Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program (Pilot; Spring 2016)

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) and the Graduate College are partnering to offer an opportunity for first and second-year undergraduate students to gain undergraduate research experience while working under the direct supervision of advanced graduate students. Beginning this Spring 2016, we will provide paid apprenticeships to ten selected undergraduate students.  Undergraduate apprentices will have an opportunity to conduct and learn the research process through a one-on-one research experience with their graduate student mentor. Students in the humanities, social sciences, and fine and applied arts are particularly encouraged to apply; however, we will accept applications from students in all disciplines. Please see the blog on OUR’s webpage – www.undergradresearch.illinois.edu – for more information and to apply. Deadline for application is Friday, November 20, 2015.


Questions may be addressed to: ugresearch@illinois.edu; please put “URAP” in the subject line.
