RE:Undergraduate Research Awards

We are pleased to announce three summer awards, two of which are new. 
The awards are available to any full-time undergraduate student for this 
coming summer. Detailed guidelines and other application materials are 
available on the web at http://www.uvm.edu/ugresearch.

_*The Summer Internships*_ are designed to allow students to carry out 
mentored research, with as much as $3,500 in wages for the student. 
Students may request up to $1,500 for research supplies. Students submit 
an application comprised of a cover page, a 2-3 page narrative 
describing the nature of their research project, budget information, and 
an endorsement by the faculty mentor.The proposal may be an extension of 
an existing research project or one newly developed, but should be 
approximately 10 weeks in length. Due date: April 8 at noon.

_*The Public Research & Creative Endeavors Scholarship*_ is a new $4,000 
award intended to help students either defray the cost of unpaid or 
underpaid internships or to fund student-initiated, community-based 
projects. All projects must have a research focus and result in a final 
report or product that will be presented on campus. The application 
consists of a purpose statement, career statement, two letters (one from 
the internship program or community partner, the other from a faculty 
mentor), a budget justification, and an unofficial transcript.Due date: 
April 15 at noon.

_*The Summer Mini Grant*_ is also new this year. Similar to the other 
Mini Grants, this one supports research expenses up to $1000 and is 
awarded for research or creative projects in all disciplines.The 
proposal may be an extension of an existing research project or one 
newly developed. Students who have previously received a Mini Grant must 
detail how the proposed research differs from or extends previously 
funded research.Students should submit an application cover page, a 2-3 
page narrative describing the nature of their project, budget 
information, and an endorsement by the faculty mentor.
Due date: May 13 at noon.

All applications are subject to committee review. Direct any questions 
to Ann Kroll Lerner at the Office of Undergraduate Research: 656-5533 or
