Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities
Who is URCA?
The Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (URCA) Program at the College of Charleston supports creative and by providing competitive grants to fund summer stipends and travel to conferences for undergraduate students and their faculty mentors. Participation in a challenging, scholarly project can be the single most important experience that a student will have in college and the training and knowledge gained from the experience are often key factors in the acquisition of professional positions and acceptance in post-graduate programs.
The benefits of an undergraduate research experience are profound. Please consider supporting us in our ongoing efforts to open opportunities for cutting edge research and creative activities with our undergraduates. You can make a tax-deductible donation to the College of Charleston URCA Fund (R377) through the College of Charleston Foundation.
