How To: Get $500 from the UHP

8 Dec

UHP/Sigelman Undergraduate Research Enhancement Award (SURE) is the best way to get free money from the UHP.

The deadline to apply this year is January 17, 2011, which means that you should probably get started now on brainstorming for good ideas (fly somewhere to study some people or an event? Attend a conference? Order some chemicals and decode the secrets of DNA?)  The possibilities are endless, and the money is free!

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, 2012.
