Undergraduate Research Scholars Now Accepting Applications!


The Undergraduate Research Scholars program is accepting applications for rising sophomores!

URS is a two-semester course in which students do hands-on research or creative work under te guidance of a UW faculty or staff mentor. Each student works on the current project of a mentor who is advancing the frontiers of knowledge or creative practice. Students also participate in a weekly seminar to explore influences of research and creative work in society.

URS offers research and creative opportunities throughout campus with mentors in all Schools & Colleges. It is a high-impact practice helping students advance academically, clarify their educational and career goals, and gain significant job-related experience.

Course Schedule/Meeting Times
Students work an average of 6 hours/week on research or creative work (exact hours and days/times are determined by the student and mentor together, accounting for the student’s class schedule). The weekly seminar is Wednesdays 5-6pm both semesters – students must have this time free in their course schedule.

Application process
URS is open to all first and second year undergraduates, and transfer students in their first year. No prior experience is necessary, and no requirements are needed to apply. URS is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive scholarly community that includes students from historically underrepresented groups.

Students must apply online at http://urs.ls.wisc.edu/. Students will receive an email 1-2 weeks after applying. Admission is rolling and the deadline is end of summer 2017.

Please email urs@saa.ls.wisc.edu
