Undergraduate Research Experience and Creative Activity

Did you know that you can get paid to do research while gaining valuable experience in a high impact practice? The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs administers University funds to directly support mentored undergraduate research through Undergraduate Research Experience and Creative Activity (URECA) grants. Awards range from $500 for beginners to $3,500 for experienced researchers.

If you have questions about URECA grants that are not answered on our site, please email the URECA Program Manager, Dr. Jamie Burriss.

Apply for a URECA Grant

Fall 2020 Deadline: Thursday, September 3rd by 4:30pm

Please note: The application looks a little different than in previous years. We recently converted the applications to Dynamic Forms to make the routing and signature process easier for the student and mentor.

  1. Determine which application is right for you.
  2. Fill out your application with the help of your faculty mentor:
    Assistant (Beginner) or Scholar (Silver, Gold, Platinum)
  3. Once you have submitted it, the application will be automatically directed to your faculty mentor for their approval.
  4. After your faculty mentor has approved the application, a completed copy will be emailed back to you. Please save this file as a PDF because you will need to upload it to Award Force.
  5. Go to the URECA applications submissions website, create an account, and the follow the instructions for submission.
