The Undergraduate Research Support Scheme enables undergraduate students to carry out an interdisciplinary summer research project.

The scheme is open to any UG student at Warwick of a full-time or part-time course, in any year including first and final year students. Erasmus and exchange students are not eligible to apply.

Applicants must get the support of academic supervisor and can apply for a URSS bursary to undertake their research project, either in the UK or abroad, for between 4-6 weeks. Bursarys are for £1500 for UK projects and overseas projects.
