Undergraduate Research Programs
LOUIS STOKES ALLIANCE FOR MINORITY PARTICIPATION (LSAMP)
Since 1993, the University of Texas System Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) has sought to increase the number of underrepresented minority students pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers. The three LSAMP programs include the Summer Research Academy (SRA), the Summer Research Academy Abroad (SRA Abroad), UTAs SCUBA (LSAMP suppliment), and the Bridge to Doctorate (BD) program.
LSAMP 2020 Summer Research Academy
Applications for the 2020 LSAMP Summer Research Academy are LIVE. All LSAMP scholars must be full-time, undergraduate students majoring in a STEM field in the Colleges of Engineering or Science. The scholars must also have completed 30 semester hours at the time of application and have a minimum 2.8 G.P.A. on a 4.0 scale. Any student who is a senior must be a NON-GRADUATING senior, meaning they will graduate after May 2020. Students must be either U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. The application must be received by February 13, 2020 @ 5 p.m. CST. Additionally, please select two (2) faculty members who can complete the online recommendation form for you. Applicants without two online submission forms received by February 20, 2020 will have an incomplete application and will not be considered.
UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANT PROGRAM (UGRAP)
UGRAP allows students to use their federal work-study to work on a research project under the guidance and mentorship of a UTA faculty member. The goal of this initiative is to expand opportunities for students to be introduced to the concept of scholarship and to learn research or scholarly methods in their field. This part-time employment opportunity will allow students to develop valuable skills that will directly enhance their education and benefit them in career planning.
UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM
UROP facilitates undergraduate participation in faculty-mentored research or creative projects. Funding is awarded to students for a semester while they assume apprenticeship with a faculty mentor’s research group or conducts independent research under the guidance of a faculty member.
