The SFI UREKA (Undergraduate Research Experience & Knowledge Award) programme supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI). The UREKA programme endeavours to expand student participation in all kinds of research - whether disciplinary or interdisciplinary - encompassing efforts by individual investigators, groups, centres and others. UREKA projects feature high quality interaction of students with faculty and/or other research mentors and access to appropriate facilities and professional development opportunities. Active research experience is considered one of the most effective ways to attract talented undergraduates and retain them in careers in science and engineering. The UREKA initiative features two types of support systems for undergraduate student research - UREKA Sites and UREKA Supplements.
# SFI funded researchers can apply for both UREKA Supplements and UREKA Sites
# Non-SFI funded researchers can only apply for UREKA Sites
# Only currently funded UREKA Sites can apply for an International Exchange Programme
