New Scholar Application

CISER logo

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

Scholars visit TTU classrooms to share the undergraduate opportunity, which 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 a case by case and as needed basis. Interviews are conducted by a team of current undergraduate Scholars, faculty mentors, and the program directors. New and current Scholars must attend Scholar Orientation.  Scholars work year round with faculty mentors, up to 29 hours a week, and become an integral part of the CISER community, participating in the a variety of dynamic events and opportunities offered by the CISER 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?
