The Undergraduate Research Scholars Program (URSP) is designed to give undergraduates an authentic research, creative, or scholarly experience under the guidance of a mentor.
View Summer 2016 URSP Seminar Schedule here. The meetings are open to all undergraduate students doing research at Mason this Summer.
Students may receive financial support and/or academic credit for their projects, in addition to developing relevant academic and professional skills. More information can be found below and in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). We also invite you to learn more about the wide range of current and past projects that students and mentors have worked on with the support of the URSP.
**New for Summer 2016! OSCAR and Smithsonian Mason School of Conservation have partnered to offer up to two summer projects.
