Scholars for Undergraduate Research (URS), Technology (UTS), and Science Education (SEdS)

Our program allows undergraduate students to achieve goals traditionally reached only through graduate programs and advanced professional opportunities. TTU undergraduate students can apply year round, and will be invited to interview on an as needed basis. Interviews are conducted by a team of current undergraduate Scholars, faculty mentors and the program directors. New and current Scholars attend Annual Scholar Orientation in preparation to work year round with faculty mentors, up to 29 hours/week, and become an integral part of the CISER seamless community, participating in the a variety of dynamic events and opportunities offered by the TTU/HHMI Science Education Program @ CISER.

Prerequisite for all URS applicants: Prior research experience on a research project for at least 3 months is required. Applicants to the program must have a recommendation/evaluation from their research mentor who should describe the applicant’s abilities relative to the potential success of a URS. Questions?
