The SPUR scheme offers bursaries for NTU students to collaborate with staff on research projects.
The deadline for proposals for the next round of the Scholarship Projects for Undergraduate Researchers scheme (SPUR) has now passed. If you have applied we will be in touch in due course.
The SPUR scheme offers bursaries for NTU students to collaborate with staff on research projects during Summer 2018. Staff have the opportunity to mentor and receive assistance from an undergraduate student during the vacation, while participating students gain research experience and contribute to the production of new knowledge. SPUR projects also feed back into the curriculum to benefit the wider student community.
This year, in addition to the usual twelve SPUR bursaries available, there are two TILT-sponsored bursaries for projects related to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Colleagues were 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.
