The Arts Undergraduate Research Award (AURA) provides funding to Arts Faculty members that enables them to hire Arts undergraduate research assistants for work on start-up or continuing research projects. By participating in these projects, AURA-funded assistants contribute to and learn about scholarly inquiry.

AURA awards are grants of $3,000, per student and are specifically recommended for domestic students, as we also have the International Undergraduate Research Award is available specifically for International students.
