In order to best meet the needs of both our student researchers and their faculty mentors we are extending the deadline for the 2012 UROP Summer Fellowship to March 1st, 2012 from the original deadline of February 1st. Consider this an official announcement of the new deadline, which we will also publicize via VCU TelegRAM, our website and our blog and social networking sites.
The fellowship, facilitated by the VCU Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, is designed to offer outstanding undergraduates the chance to make substantial and significant progress on a formal, structured research endeavor over the summer in collaboration with a faculty mentor.
Students from all disciplines are encouraged to apply, and we actively foster interdisciplinary collaboration through our program. Application instructions remain unchanged with the exception of the New Application Deadline: March 1st, 2012.
Full application instructions can be found on our website here: http://www.research.vcu.edu/vpr/ugresources/fellowship-instructions.htm
