The Office of Undergraduate Research and Graduate Opportunity (URGO) connects students with both new and existing research and scholarship on campus, across the U.S., and internationally. Each summer over 30 Augsburg students participate in URGO’s 10-week research program on campus, while others pursue research opportunities off campus at institutions such as Harvard, Mayo Clinic, and the University of Minnesota.

The URGO office also assists students applying for graduate school, professional school in the health sciences (MD, PA, RN, PT, etc.), and national fellowships and scholarships. Augsburg is proud to be represented among Rhodes, Fulbright, and Goldwater scholars, and in prestigious graduate programs at universities such as Dartmouth, Johns Hopkins, and UW-Madison.


Mayo Innovations Scholars Program (MISP) Applications Available

MISP is a program developed by Mayo Clinic to explore the new technologies that are being developed by scientists at Mayo. These products are submitted to the Mayo Clinic Office of Intellectual Property (OIP) for a thorough investigation of marketability. One of these products or inventions is assigned to each MISP team.  Augsburg’s team of five will work together to understand the science and applications of the projects or innovations and analyze the market potential. The end result of the team investigation will be a business plan and final presentation at Mayo Clinic.
