URAP Opportunities

Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program

The Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program (URAP) is designed to involve Berkeley undergraduates more deeply in the research life of the University. The Program provides opportunities for you to work with faculty on the cutting edge research projects for which Berkeley is world-renowned. Working closely with faculty, you will deepen your knowledge and skills in areas of special interest, while experiencing what it means to be part of an intellectual community engaged in research.  The Anthropology department provides many opportunities to work with our faculty through URAP. 

Students can receive 1 unit for every 45 hours of work (3 hours of work per week) on a faculty project.  Students who participate in the fall and Spring can apply for Surf funding for a summer research project.  New research opportunities are open at the start of each semester. Student applications and supporting materials are due in the Program Office in 301 Campbell Hall in the second week of classes each term.
