Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities
In keeping with the university’s commitment to promote the scholarly work of undergraduates, the College of Letters and Science at UC Santa Barbara offers a variety of programs to support research and creative activities under faculty supervision. Undergraduates from all majors may apply for awards that are supported by various funding sources. A competition for these awards is held in October. Students involved in research and creative projects have an opportunity to present their work at the annual Colloquium on Undergraduate Research in the spring.
Other scholarly experiences may be found in Opportunity Alert, an online listing updated on a continual basis. For more information about undergraduate research opportunities, visit the college’s Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (URCA) website: www.ltsc.ucsb.edu/urca.
