Undergraduate Research Fellowships
The Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program
Undergraduate Research Fellowships (URFs) are intended to provide Honors students with hands-on research experience in any academic discipline. Students work under faculty mentorship to gain important research skills and contribute to projects that are a vital part of the academic experience, and that provide a realistic foundation for advanced studies.
Conditions of Eligibility:
All Honors students who have completed a minimum of 24 hours of college credits, are in good academic standing, and who are continuing their studies at UT Arlington are eligible to apply. Degreed undergraduates and those who have held an Honors Summer Fellowship in previous years are not eligible to apply.
Terms of Appointment:
The Fellowship appointments are for 25 hours per week during the 11-week summer semester. Students are encouraged to enroll in HONR-4000 or another independent study course (graded, not P/F). The instructor of record for an independent study course (other than HONR-4000) must be the faculty mentor.
Students must complete the application, which requires a personal statement and research proposal. The research proposal must be prepared in collaboration with a full-time instructor or tenured/tenure-track faculty member at UT Arlington.
Preference will be given to those who have:
- Developed a research proposal in collaboration with a full-time instructor or tenured/tenure-track faculty member at UT Arlington (faculty MUST be on campus during the summer);
- Clearly defined their research role and the overall significance of the research;
- Made timely progress toward the Honors degree; and
- Plan to attend graduate or professional school.
Application for the URF is made through the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program
