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 [log in to unmask].
