Undergraduate Research Program

The Office of Sponsored Programs, in conjunction with the Office of Academic Affairs, and the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, Education and Human Sciences, and Nursing has established ‘The University of North Alabama Undergraduate Research Program’ (URP).   URP is designed to encourage and support student-initiated research efforts and production projects that are focused in their field of study.

URP will award up to four undergraduate research/production development grants, with each grant funded up to $1,000.  Grant award recipients will be required to enroll in an Independent Study course (400 level).   In addition to the $1000 research grant, the URP will waive, up to three credit hours, the Independent Study course tuition.

Students interested in conducting independent research or developing production projects are invited to submit a proposal by March 1, 2017 for funding consideration.   Submission of proposals from all disciplines is encouraged.    Proposals can emphasize basic, applied, pedagogical, or exploratory research, technological advances, and development or production projects.    The Undergraduate Research Program is a competitive award initiative, thus, proposals must meet guidance criteria in order to be considered.
