How to Apply: UCARE

To apply for UCARE, students must submit an online application between November – February on NuRamp.
Students can apply for a project in Summer, Academic Year, or an extended project from June – April. If a student plans to engage in two different projects in Summer and Academic Year, they should submit two separate applications for each term.
