For 10 years, the Undergraduate Research Initiative (URI) has supported the involvement of University of Alberta undergraduate students in research and creative activities. The work of the URI is student-focused, aiming to minimize barriers to undergraduate research by helping students overcome constraints of time, money, confidence, or access to meaningful opportunities.

Since opening its doors in 2011, the URI office has supported more than 1000 students through our funding programs, advised nearly 3000 students, delivered more than 400 seminars, and hosted over 1000 FURCA presentations!
