Our Story

A Little About Us

The University Research Scholars Program (URSP) is by invitation only and introduces its scholars to the exciting world of academic research.  In the program, students are exposed to many opportunities in which they can improve upon their skills as undergraduate researchers. These opportunities range from workshops and seminars to research centered courses and access to peer mentoring. Through these initiatives, students will take away understandings of how to utilize the benefits of undergraduate research.

The Undergraduate Research Scholars Program helped to make my experience at UF more enjoyable. I was able to meet many different types of students in the research and creativity class and learn what research was like at this university.
