Did you know that graduating researchers are eligible for research distinction in their transcripts and graduation cords? The Undergraduate Research Scholar Designation (URSD) recognizes a student’s commitment to their development as a researcher during their undergraduate career.
Any undergraduate researchers who have completed the requirements below are invited to apply:
- Two semesters of research with a University of Utah faculty mentor
- A presentation of the research at the Undergraduate Research Symposium, UCUR, or NCUR
- A publication of the research in the Undergraduate Research Journal (URJ) [bs_label type=”info”]Still Accepting Submissions![/bs_label]
If you’re an experienced undergraduate researcher who meets the criteria above, we invite you to apply now! The final deadline for Spring 2019 graduates is Tuesday, April 23 at 11:59pm.
At the end of each semester, we will review the submitted applications and forward the names of qualifying students to the Registrar’s office. It may take up to sixty days for the designation to appear on your transcript, but URSD awardees can pick up their white research cords from the Office of Undergraduate Research to wear at convocation and commencement.
