URCAP 2024: Details and deadlines


It’s time to apply for the 2024 University Research and Creative Achievement Program! URCAP is an opportunity to highlight and celebrate students’ creative activity across disciplines. 

There are three components to which students can apply: 

URCAP Undergraduate Research Awards: Applications will be evaluated based on content and require a recommendation from an advisor. Cash prizes will be awarded.

URCAD University Research and Creative Achievement Day: An opportunity for all students to showcase their research in the form of a poster or an oral presentation. Applications for the Research Award will be automatically submitted to the URCAD event. URCAD will be held on Monday, April 29, at Alumni Hall in the Student Center.

Elihu Burritt Library Research Awards: The Elihu Burritt Library's Student Research Awards recognize excellence in Central undergraduate and graduate research papers/projects as well as skill and creativity in the application of library services, resources, and collections. Two prizes of $350 will be awarded, one to an undergraduate student and the other to a graduate student during the 2024 spring semester at the University Research and Creative Achievement Day (URCAD).
