Engineering Undergraduate Research Program (EURP)

The College of Engineering Undergraduate Research Program (EURP) is designed to involve outstanding undergraduate students in research projects and encourage these students to consider graduate school.

To be eligible, you must:

  • be admitted into the Professional Program in the College of Engineering
  • be graduating no sooner than Fall 2018
  • have at least a 3.4 GPA (or GPA required by your department)
  • have the support of a faculty research advisor in the College of Engineering

The major features of the program are:

  • EURP provides total funding of $4500 for a student stipend (450 hours at $10/hour). You are expected to work at least 10 hours per week, starting in the Spring 2018 semester.
  • EURP funding can be used in Spring 2018 through Spring 2019. Your research must be finished by the end of Spring 2019 semester.
  • You must provide a short summary of your research progress at the end of each semester. Renewal of your EURP appointment for the next semester (or summer) is contingent on approval from your research advisor. 
  • You should present your results at an appropriate professional venue (technical meeting, peer-reviewed publication, USU Undergraduate Research Showcase, Utah Conference on Undergraduate Research, Research on the Hill, etc.).
  • You should apply for the "Undergraduate Research Scholar" designation to be included on your official student transcript.

Applications for Spring 2018 will be available in September
