Check the eligibility criteria for each program as well as the UGAR general eligibility criteria before applying. Late applications are not accepted for any program. If you have questions about programs or application processes, contact UGAR before the application deadline.
Applications are accepted quarterly for URAD Scholars to conduct research in the following term (due by 11:59pm one week before the last day of classes):
Deadline for the student application and faculty recommendation form (by 11:59pm). Late applications will NOT be accepted for any reason.
Deadlines for submitting the recommendation request form (by 11:59pm). This is one week prior to the application deadline to ensure that your faculty mentor has adequate time to complete the recommendation form.
You may submit the recommendation request form after the deadline, but this lateness will be taken into consideration in the application review process. The recommendation request form will close 24 hours prior to the application deadline (at 11:59pm) and will not be reopened for any reason.
Other research programs and sources of funding:
Students will be notified of their eligibility to apply for the Presidential Scholars program in winter of sophomore year. Applications are due in spring term of sophomore year:
NOTE: this is a two term program and both terms must be completed during R terms in your junior year ("sophomore summer" through spring of junior year). If this is not feasible due to scheduling constraints, URAD may be a better option.
Applications for conference funding are accepted on a rolling basis. Students must submit applications at least two weeks before the conference.
Students apply for the Stamps Scholars program in the winter of sophomore year.
Application deadline: February 15
Students apply for the Senior Fellowship TWO TERMS prior to the start of the proposed fellowship. The standard cycle is to apply in spring of junior year for Senior Fellowships to begin in fall of senior year.
Students proposing to begin a fellowship in a term other than fall term must contact UGAR to determine the application deadline (which will be TWO TERMS prior to the proposed start of the fellowship).
Note: Students must submit the Senior Fellowship interest form no later than the 6th week of the term, one term prior to the term of application (which would be winter for the standard application cycle)
Students who submit the interest form will be contacted by UGAR to set up an initial meeting about the program and the application process. If you have not been contacted within a week of submitting the interest form, email UGAR.
Applications for the MMUF program are accepted each year on February 15.
