Under Research, Innovation and Graduate Studies – choose “Undergraduate Research Experience Award Application.”

1. Project Info: Include the title and proposed start and end dates of your project.
NOTE: Be aware of the dates that you choose. If your project is chosen for funding, the end date indicated here will be considered the deadline for project completion, and you will need to contact the research office for an extension should you wish to extend that deadline.

Related Certifications: once you have applied for certifications (e.g. human ethics, animal care, biohazard), you can associate them with this file here. Once funds have been awarded, it is critical to secure all necessary certifications before you will be issued any funds. If you are unsure, ask your supervisor whether your project will require certification.

2. Project Team Info: You will automatically be added as the principal investigator. For UREAP you are likely to be the only investigator on this project. If you would like your supervisor to have access to your application, you may include him/her as a co-investigator.
Add co-investigators using “Other Project Member Info”
a. Click Add New
b. IMPORTANT: ALWAYS choose  retrieve info button before adding investigator information. If an investigator is added to the database twice, the system will have problems properly managing communications.

If you wish to attach a document and are unsure whether it would be appropriate, email cwhitelaw@tru.ca.

When you hit “Submit” the application will automatically be forwarded to the Research Office for committee review and adjudication. You will receive email confirmation that your application has been successfully submitted and will be able to follow the application through the approval process by viewing the Logs tab within the application.
NOTE: When you have clicked “Submit” a “Comments” box will appear. You must type something in this box to proceed with submission.
