The Undergraduate Research Fellow (URF) scholarship is an undergraduate student mentor program that provides more opportunities for undergraduate students to work closely with faculty members at Broad. The scholarship value ranges from $1,200 to $1,500 for the academic year.
An integral part of leadership and professional development will be available through research seminars facilitated by Undergraduate Research at Michigan State University, networking opportunities and presentation experiences. These events are available throughout the year.
Undergraduate Research Fellow scholarships are limited, and restricted to current MSU students who are admitted to Broad (business-admitted, accounting, finance, hospitality business, human resource management, management, marketing, and supply chain management majors). In order to be considered for this scholarship, students must be nominated by a Broad College faculty member.
Any student who accepts the nomination must agree to present at the University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum during the following Spring semester as a condition of the scholarship.
