How to apply

The Undergraduate Research Support Scheme enables undergraduate students to carry out an interdisciplinary summer research public engagement project. For advice and support on public engagement initiatives please go to the WIE web page

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 6-10 weeks.


URSS bursary

A URSS bursary contributes to your living expenses and other associated costs whilst carrying out your project. Each applicant can request up to a maximum amount of £1000 if they wish to conduct their research in the UK, whilst international research projects can be awarded a maximum of £1500. If you choose to include a public engagement element in your application you must show this in your budget breakdown.

You will be required to justify your bursary on the application form by providing a fully researched breakdown of projected costs.
