Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Awards provide funds to support faculty-mentored research and creative projects undertaken by undergraduate students. Applications consist of a summary of the work to be completed and a budget. Budgets can include funds to pay for supplies and materials to support the project, travel to the site of the project and a stipend for the student.
There are two deadlines per year. The first is the last Friday in September and the second is the last Friday in January. For fall 2018, the deadline has been moved to Oct. 5, 2018 at 5 PM. Reviews are carried out by discipline-specific faculty in four areas: biomedical science; science, technology, engineering, and math; social science; and humanities and arts. Applications are submitted and reviewed through Qualtrics.
