Undergraduate Research, Scholarly and Creative Activity Scholarship-Continuing Students
Pioneer Undergraduate Research, Scholarly and Creative Activity (URSCA) Scholarships are prestigious awards granted to UW-Platteville students pursuing scholarly activities and are funded through the Student Research and Engagement Fund (SREF). They provide $1,000/semester. Each scholarship is for one semester only but recipients may re-apply for subsequent semesters.
Individual students in every major are eligible and are encouraged to apply; group projects are allowed but students must apply individually and must clearly describe what their particular role will be. Eligible activities include: laboratory or field research, qualitative research, creative (art/music/theater/writing) activities, or other projects. Associate and Assistant Deans from each of the three Colleges at UW-Platteville and student representatives will evaluate the proposals to select the URSCA Scholarship award winners. All students are eligible to apply. While at least half of the awards are intended to be given to students in their first or second year of study at UW-Platteville, traditionally under-represented minority students and/or first generation college students, if students in these categories do not apply the money will be still be distributed. Preference will be given to students and projects not currently receiving other forms of funding. For more information and to view the templates, please click here.
