The Undergraduate Research Support Scheme (URSS) 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.
If you are interested in developing a global research project, then please contact the Director of the Global History and Culture Centre (email@example.com) for an informal conversation, or, if you prefer, contact any of the members of the centre who could supervise your research.
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 6-10 weeks.
