The Office of Undergraduate Research is pleased to announce the opening of applications for the Summer 2019 Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Award (CURA) program.
CURA supports undergraduate involvement in research and other creative and scholarly endeavors across campus.
The Summer CURA program will support students to engage in research / creative inquiry experiences through June 29, 2019.
To participate in the CURA program, you will need to identify a faculty member with whom you are interested in working and who agrees to supervise and mentor you on a project related to their work. You can search by department, name or keyword in the Undergraduate Research experience database at https://ure.uic.edu/. The faculty member then completes the online application on your behalf at https://cura.uic.edu/information-for-faculty/.
If you are interested in research but do not have Federal Work Study this coming year, you should speak with an academic advisor or Director of Undergraduate Studies to find out about options for course credit or other funded or sponsored programs in the degree-granting college. You can also refer to this webpage:
http://ure.uic.edu/for_students_credit.php or email OUR at email@example.com. Various sponsored and structured programs are listed here: http://undergradresearch.uic.edu/opportunities/.
If you have questions, feel free to email the Office of Undergraduate Research at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here to support your interest in participating in the high-impact practice of undergraduate research, which enhances the student experience and contributes in a multitude of ways to positive educational outcomes for you and many other UIC students.
