NEW THIS YEAR! If applicable, students applying to the URA program are invited to identify a project subcategory. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: In keeping with broader university-wide diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, a portion of available funds will be reserved for research, scholarship, or creative activities in the areas of social justice, human rights, diversity, equity and inclusion. Proposals in these areas are encouraged to address a scholarly question that will lead to testable objectives or measurable outcomes. Regular eligibility criteria and application procedures, as outlined in the URA Program Guidelines, will apply.

IDEA (Interdisciplinary Engagement Award) This award category provides a student team an opportunity to collaborate with at least one faculty mentor across student team members’  disciplinary boundaries.
