URSA annually* offers awards in recognition of the valuable contributions made by faculty, students, and staff to encourage participation in undergraduate research.
Three award categories assure that the many and varied individuals and programs supporting undergraduate research are acknowledged. In order to fully appreciate the range of scholarly research conducted across the campus, two awards are given in the category, Outstanding Research Mentor.
* The presentation of an award in a specific category is contingent upon an adequate number of high quality nominees. Thus, awards will not be conveyed in a year when the pool of nominees in inadequate.
