UGRA Student Application

Student Information
Project Information
If you have more than one mentor, you may enter information for a second person (faculty, research staff, or graduate student) who may also provide us with an evaluation.
Public Law 93-380 and its amendments give a student the right of access to letters of recommendation. In order to encourage the authors of letters to write with candor, students can also waive this right to access. All documents that are part of this application will be used only for the purposes of evaluating students' qualifications for the UGRAs.
