The submission deadline is April 9, 2017; a $500 award that will occur, following Scholars Day (April 2018), if you become a 2017-2018 Undergraduate Research Fellow and if you participate, as stipulated below.
The monetary award for the 2017-2018 academic year will be disbursed after Scholars Day 2018, and will fund such expenses such as conference or research expenditures or UNT tuition (we will not fund study or research at other universities). Bear in mind that, to receive your $500 tuition credit, you must conduct research throughout the fall of 2017 and the spring of 2018, and you may not graduate prior to May, 2018. Because you must participate in spring-semester Scholars Day (2018)—with poster presentations, papers, or brief performing-arts productions—all distributions of funds (through student-account credits) will occur in the late spring semester of 2018. Students who currently hold a URF may reapply for another such award if they will not graduate prior to May of 2018 and if they have previously accrued no more than two such fellowships.
