Undergraduate Research Program

Deadlines for travel grant applications are the last business days in February, May, August, and November.
URECA! Grants application deadline for this semester is February 28th at 4:30.

Undergraduate Research is actively supported through the Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity (URECA!) program. Additionally, TTU is an active member of the Council of Undergraduate Research (CUR).


The URECA! (Undergraduate REsearch and Creative Activity) Program provides monetary assistance for undergraduates who pursue research and creative activities at TTU through academic year mini-grants, summer grants with stipends, and travel grants for students and their accompanying faculty mentors. The mini-grants are for the academic year with a maximum award of $1,000, and the summer grants are for a maximum of $4,000 including a stipend. Undergraduate researchers and their faculty mentors can also apply for travel grants.

For Fall Semester 2013, the Undergraduate Research Steering Committee acccepted applications for URECA! Program Mini-grants until October 18th. Undergraduate research is a student-faculty collaboration to examine, create, and share new knowledge or works in ways commensurate with practices in the discipline.

Opportunities for undergraduate research and creative activities are extensive at TTU and limited only by your imagination. Research and creative activities should be directed by a faculty member within the University, but it can be conducted independently, on a team, and or in an outside facility.
