The Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program (URAP) provides undergraduate students with an authentic science and engineering research experience alongside university researchers sponsored by the Army Research Office. Through these commuter programs students will develop skills in Army critical science and engineering research areas in a university lab setting to prepare them for the next steps of their educational and professional career.
A primary objective of the URAP program is to provide a mechanism to expose new students to research opportunities in the sponsored laboratory. Thus persons with recent prior affiliation with a specific laboratory may not be eligible to receive an apprenticeship through this program. Prior affiliation includes direct employment, past compensated research (e.g. REU, other funded research, or research for course credit).
Please note: URAP is for commuting students only. It is NOT an in-residence program. No housing allowance or meal plan is provided. Please be sure to apply for only university laboratories that you are able to commute to daily.
URAP students receive an educational stipend equivalent to $10 per hour, and are allowed to work up to 300 hours total. The students contribute to the Army’s research in the laboratory while learning research methods, using advanced research equipment and becoming a part of an active research group. This authentic experience provides exposure to science and engineering research careers.
At the end of the program students will prepare abstracts documenting the research they performed during the apprenticeship. Guidelines and deadlines will be provided to students participating in the program.
