Summer 2024 Undergraduate Research Assistantship (URA) Program Information

The Office of Student Research is currently accepting URA applications for the Summer 2024 semester. URA's offer highly motivated undergraduate students the opportunity to work closely with App State Faculty on the Faculty member’s research, scholarship, or creative activity.

The Faculty member, in consultation with their selected undergraduate student, are encouraged to apply. The URA Program is open to all disciplines at Appalachian State.  

Please review the proposal requirements and URA application questions, as they have changed from semester to semester. We encourage Faculty members to thoroughly discuss the opportunity with an intended undergraduate student and confirm their ability to fulfill the requirements of the position (80 hours of work for the semester) and commit to the time and workload involved with the proposed project.

Undergraduate Research Assistantship applications for Summer 2024 are due Wednesday, May 15, 2024 at 11:59 pm with award notifications returned by the end of May.

Students must be enrolled in at least one course during the summer to be eligible for the URA program. 

Please visit the Office of Student Research URA webpage for further details regarding the application process and to access the form link. These grants focus on the Faculty Mentor’s research, allowing for undergraduate students to assist in any part of the process. URA's can begin work on or after June 16, 2024 with work to be completed by August 15, 2024.
