The Office of Undergraduate Research in the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Affairs and Academic Programs is pleased to announce that a number of Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards (CURA) are available for Spring 2018. The CURA program supports research collaborations involving undergraduate work-study students at no cost to faculty or their departments. The faculty member applies on behalf of themselves and the student by filling out the online application linked to the Undergraduate Research Experience (URE) website at ure.uic.edu/facfws.php#apply Students may also register for research or independent study credit with the approval of their undergraduate advisors and/or directors of undergraduate studies.
Faculty and staff: if you are not yet registered as a prospective supervisor/mentor or project contact, please create a profile/project description at www.ure.uic.edu. This will allow students to learn about what you are working on and to contact you directly. If you are registered and haven't updated your profile lately, please log in and be sure everything is current.
Students: go to ure.uic.edu and search by department, faculty name or keyword to find available positions. Note: you can only apply for a spring award if you have already accepted federal work study as part of your AY 17-18 financial aid package.
Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and awards will be granted to qualifying applicants through the month of February.
If you have questions, feel free to email the Office of Undergraduate Research at firstname.lastname@example.org.
