Students may apply for TURC Team Projects or for Student-Led TURC Projects. In both cases, the first step is to secure the sponsorship of a faculty mentor. Students may only submit one application per year. Within one year, students may be funded only for a summer or for the academic year, but not for both. The TURC year runs from May through April.
Please click on the menu in the upper left-hand corner for more information about these two types of projects and the application process.
A directory of TURC Team projects that are seeking undergraduate co-investigators/creators will be posted on the TURC web pages by January 10, 2024.
Interested students should email a letter of interest to the faculty leader of the project by Feb. 10, 2024. If the professor conveys willingness to sponsor their application, the student should then submit an application to the portal. The portal will be available on this web page by Feb. 10, 2024. The deadline for applications to the portal is March 1, 2024.
Current TURC Scholars are eligible to apply for a renewal of funding on the same project, or apply for admission to another project, if they can demonstrate measurable outcomes for the preceding year’s work.
