Student and Faculty Funding
  • Seven times each year, URSA awards funding to undergraduate students to support research projects as well as travel to conferences to present their work.
  • Faculty members, postdocs and graduate students may apply for the Mentoring award opportunity each fall to receive funding to support development and implementation of undergraduate research opportunities.
  • All UAF staff, students, and faculty are eligible to apply for Community Engaged Learning awards once each fall and Innovative Technology and Education awards once each spring.
  • In 2018, URSA awarded nearly $300,000 in funding.
  • 41% of all UAF undergraduate students to participate in research during their time at UAF.
  • We are always willing to help with any part of the process. Please stop by the office, email or call. We have a notebook of previously funded applications available in the office that you are welcome to stop by and view. We do not make copies or email them.
