Apply to UCARE
Identify prospective faculty research advisor
See the resources in the Student Researchers Toolkit on identifying and meeting with prospective faculty research advisors. You must have a faculty research advisor on board before you apply for UCARE funding.
Meeting with a potential faculty research advisor
Send an introductory email to the potential faculty research advisor with your goals and your knowledge of the topic and the professor’s research. If you’ve had research experience, describe the work you’ve done and with whom and let the faculty member know you’d like to meet to discuss their research and the possibility of joining their research team.
Once you’ve scheduled an appointment, be sure to bring
- A resume
- A brief write-up of your research interests and the skills you are developing or would like to develop
- A list of relevant courses that you’ve taken
- A notebook and pen
If you know you’d like to go to graduate school and study X, share this with your potential mentor. If he or she isn’t a match, you might get an excellent recommendation to meet with another person.
Write your proposal and submit the application
After receiving the commitment from your faculty research advisor, you’re ready to write your research proposal and submit an application to UCARE via NuRAMP. Applications are typically accepted November – February for awards in the following Summer and Academic Year. Watch the Undergraduate Research calendar for specific dates.
