Undergraduate students at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock are eligible to receive a $1,000 grant to fund a signature experience during the 2018-19 academic year. 

UA Little Rock is providing 100 $1,000 grants so students can participate in a signature experience over the course of the 2018-19 academic year, such as a research project, creative activity, or community service project, that will contribute significantly to an undergraduate student’s academic development. The priority deadline is Sept. 15 while the final deadline is Sept. 30.

Chancellor Andrew Rogerson announced the program in 2017 to inspire UA Little Rock undergraduate students to conduct research and creative projects to enrich their academic experience.

To receive a signature experience award, undergraduate students must have a minimum 2.5 grade point average and have a faculty member to mentor the project.

This year, UA Little Rock faculty members who are serving as mentors to students completing a signature experience are responsible for initiating an application and filling out the information necessary to be considered for a Mentored Signature Experience Project award. Students may propose a project to a mentor, but the mentor is responsible for submitting the application in full. Mentors may initiate an application without having a designated mentee, but the award will not be distributed until the project has a student mentee.

Projects must be completed by the end of the 2019 spring semester. Student award recipients will present their findings at the 2019 spring Undergraduate Research and Creative Works Showcase.

Applications can be filled out through this online form. For more information, contact Dr. Jeremy Ecke at
