URSA Engage is designed to establish mentoring relationships for undergraduates early in their program at OSU. The goal is to provide first and second year students, and transfer students in their first year at OSU, opportunities to pursue research or a creative activity under the guidance of an OSU mentor. An incentive is provided to mentors for taking on relatively inexperienced students who may not have been previously exposed to, or be aware of, the research/scholarship enterprise. The program is available to undergraduates and mentors at all campuses.
The program will provide $750 for the undergraduate URSA Engage awardees, and $250 in the form of development funds for mentors.
Based on feedback from students and faculty, a hybrid of programs implemented the last two years will be offered in 2016-2017. Highlights of the program:
Evaluation Criteria: Selection of awardees will be based on quality of the mentoring plan and the proposed project, and expected impacts of the experience on the undergraduate.
