The office of Undergraduate Research & Scholarly Activity (URSA) is UAF's resource for the development and promotion of experiential learning activities that engage undergraduate students to support UAF's goal to become a leading student-focused research university.
Undergraduate research and creative activity at UAF covers all disciplines, from climate sciences to music, engineering, anthropology, life sciences, art and theater.

Summer Student Project Awards are for degree-seeking UAF undergraduate students (enrolled in six or more credits) from all disciplines and UAF campuses. The Summer 2023 awards offer up to $6,000 for an individual or up a group of two or more students. Funds may be used towards a fellowship, tuition, travel, services or supplies.
Applications will open February 6, 2023.
ALL undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, staff and fulltime faculty requiring technology-related equipment and/or software for student-based instruction and/or research are invited to apply for an URSA Innovative Technology and Education (ITE) Award of up to $5,000.
Travel funds support students presenting research or creative activity outcomes at a conference, meeting or congregation of their peers/professionals in their respective field, as well as students partaking in competitions.
Virtual event registration fees are also eligible for funding.
This annual event allows students to showcase their scholarly experiences from the current academic year through posters, presentations, creative displays, and public performances. Both URSA-funded and non-URSA students are encouraged to participate. All UAF students, faculty, staff, and the community at large are invited to attend. After two years of virtual celebrations, we are excited to gather together in-person on the UAF campus.
Join us in celebrating Tehya McLeod, Fall 2022 URSA Student Project awardee, as she opens her exhibit Exploring Shifting Landscapes. Tehya McLeod is a local Alaskan artist inspired by the land around us. She has a passion for outdoor exploration, and learning more about the impacts that affect the places we love. Recently she has been motivated to share how landscapes around us are shifting with relation to environmental impacts and to encourage sustainable design practices.
