The SPUR scheme offers bursaries for NTU students to collaborate with staff on research projects.

Applications are now invited for the next round of the Scholarship Projects for Undergraduate Researchers scheme (SPUR). The application form and guidance documents are available on the SPUR SharePoint site.

There are 12 bursaries available for NTU students to collaborate with staff on research projects during Summer 2019. Staff will have the opportunity to mentor and receive assistance from an undergraduate student during the vacation, while participating students will gain research experience and contribute to the production of new knowledge. SPUR projects should also feed back into the curriculum to benefit the wider student community.

In addition to the twelve SPUR bursaries, there are two TILT-sponsored bursaries for projects related to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Colleagues are offered the opportunity to propose projects for staff and students to collaborate on research into learning and teaching which demonstrates the potential to enhance the student academic experience.

The deadline for submissions has now passed for projects taking place over the summer of 2019. We will announce successful projects in due course.
