The first step in the application process is to talk to faculty in your area of interest, and find someone who would be willing to be your mentor. You will need to have an outline of your project and a statement from your mentor to apply. Click here to learn about the role of the mentor.
Once you have agreement from a member of the faculty who is willing to mentor you, work with them to complete this application form. This is due by 4 p.m. on February 1, 2013 to the Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Activity in Founders Hall, Room 2111.
