The office of Undergraduate Research and Service Learning is pleased to offer supplemental funding for undergraduates engaged in academic experiences that require students cover expenses beyond normal academic fees and costs. These awards are competitive and are, therefore, evaluated in terms of the expected impact on the student applicant's experience, the necessity of the funding for the experience to take place, and the connection of the experience to academic enhancement. Awards are limited to $500, but any expense must be explained and clearly budgeted. These are not cash awards, but are funds that can be applied to allowable travel, materials, or other detailed expenses with appropriate documentation. 

To apply, students should fill out this form and upload a letter of support from a faculty sponsor. All fields are required. The faculty support letter does not necessarily have to be a UTPA faculty member. Students must agree to the terms of the award.

The office of Undergraduate Research & Service Learning would like to invite the UTPA community to attend its Second Annual Service Learning Showcase. Students who participated in Service Learning activities this semseter will be showcasing projects displaying their work with local non-profit organizations.

REGISTER TODAY: If you have participated in Service Learning activities this semester and are interested in being a part of this event, please fill out our registration form on Bronc Link.
