Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program Sites
The Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Programs (URAP) Site Grant program provided seed funding for colleges or departments to develop or expand undergraduate research opportunities. URAP sites have a well-defined common focus that enables a cohort experience for students. In 2011-12, four programs were awarded seed funding.
