Applications now open for King's Undergraduate Research Fellowship Scheme (KURF)

Posted on 17/03/2017
King’s College has recently opened the King's Undergraduate Research Fellowship (KURF) scheme for applications. Launched in 2014, the scheme has been creating opportunities for students to conduct live research on a project as a fellow alongside a supervisor and earn £250 a week. Students have secured authorships, attended overseas conferences, curated exhibitions and participated in real-world applications of research.


Transferable skills and weekly stipends

The Fellowships are usually offered for four to eight weeks and require 35 hours of work per week. The varied roles can include laboratory work, conducting interviews or undertaking a literature review. The scheme is only open to UG students and does not require applicants to have any previous research experience.

Fellowship holders stand to benefit from the experience of undertaking research during their undergraduate studies. The Fellowship enhances students’ learning with active engagement in knowledge production. Undertaking a Fellowship is also advantageous if students are considering postgraduate study or research, and can enhance their transferable skills.

Applicants can use the online form to apply and read the brochure for further information.

King’s Experience Research Award

Successful applications for the Fellowships are also enrolled on the King’s Experience Research Award, which enables students to gain formal recognition of their role as Research Fellows. Successful completion of the Research Award will feature on students ‘Higher Education Achievement Record’.
