URSA Small Grant Program

OBJECTIVES
The Office of the Vice Provost for Research (OVPR) has initiated this Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Achievement (URSA) Small Grant Program to promote and expand research participation by undergraduate students, to engage students in the active faculty/student collaborative learning relationships necessary for success in all fields of research, and to expose students to resources and facilities that may stimulate their interest in pursuing research careers.

ELIGIBILITY
Full-time Baylor faculty, regardless of rank, are eligible to serve as principal investigators for URSA small grants.

Visiting faculty, adjunct faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and research associates may participate in small grant programs, but are not eligible to serve as principal investigators.

The OVPR encourages collaborative proposals that engage students in interdisciplinary research environments.

DEADLINES
Proposals for funding in FY '16 (June 1, 2015-May 31, 2016) are due by noon on Feb. 18, 2015.
