Get up to $500 to studywhat you’d like [SURE Award]

29 Nov

Did you know that Honors students have the exclusive opportunity to win up to $500 for their research? It’s true!  Apply to the UHP/Sigelman Undergraduate Research Enhancement Award (SURE) and we might just cut you a check.

We know “Undergraduate Research Enhancement” doesn’t sound that exciting (well, to most people at least, but you are UHPers), but what you can actually do with that money is pretty sweet. Some of  last year’s winners used it to buy high tech equipment to turn algae into biofuel for their class project.  Others — like Chelsey Faloona – used the money to travel for her research.  The possibilities are endless, but the deadline to apply this year is January 17, 2012.

Keep reading for more info, or read about the award here.

Who: All UHP Students

What: Research of any kind, in any subject. For a course or for fun, it’s up to you!

When: Spring, Summer or Fall of 2012

Where: Like Indiana Jones, you go where your research takes you.

Why: Settle unanswered questions from class; test your interest in a field; set yourself apart in job and grad applications; get the money you need to do the research you want!

Students can apply for grants in support of their research up to the amount of $500 for such needs as (but not limited to) equipment or supplies, travel costs to libraries or conferences, or image rights.  Funds are available to support research activities conducted during the spring, summer, and/or fall semesters of 2012, and applications are due January, 17, 2011.
