WSU students taking part in mentored research have until Jan. 21 to apply for undergraduate research fellowships for the 2022-23 academic year. 

The application opened Nov. 1 and is available to students of all majors at all six WSU campuses, according to a WSU Insider article

Students do not need previous research experience to apply, but must submit a brief statement of current or future research, according to the Office of Undergraduate Research website

When a student submits their application, an email will be sent to their research mentor asking for an endorsement, which is due Jan. 28, according to the website. A student’s mentor will oversee the research they do after receiving the award. 

There are seven different awards available, and students can apply for more than one if they are eligible, according to WSU Insider.

The PDF for the application can be found on the Office of Undergraduate Research website.
