|The Markin Undergraduate Student Research Program in Health and Wellness (USRP)||The Markin Undergraduate Student Research Program (USRP) provides an excellent and exciting opportunity for undergraduates to do some 'real' research on a Health and Wellness related topic with direct guidance from leading University of Calgary researchers. In effect undergraduate students "partner up" with Faculty Mentors with similar research interests. The application for USRP funding is a joint venture between the Faculty Mentor and the student.
The primary goal of the USRP is to enrich and enhance your undergraduate experience. The results have, so far, been spectacular. Past participants have told us that the USRP had a significant impact in their academic careers and gave them direction, drive and a better sense of the 'big picture' surrounding their class-room study.
In addition it seems that early and direct involvement in research is increasing the future success of our students. Former USRP participants are succeeding in their applications for graduate studies, medical school and other post-degree programs.
