Are you interested in an undergraduate creative activity or research experience at University of Nebraska-Lincoln?
The Undergraduate Creative Activities and Research Experience program supports undergraduate students engaged in research and creative activities under the guidance of a faculty mentor. If you’re a full-time undergraduate who will have completed at least 30 credit hours by May 2017, you may be eligible to apply for a UCARE undergraduate research assistantship for the 2017-18 academic year. Applications are accepted through March 3 and students considering graduate school are especially encouraged to apply.
UCARE recipients commit to 10 hours per week of research or creative activity and receive a $2,400 stipend. At the end of the academic year, students present their research findings in a poster session at the annual Spring Research Fair. Skill-building seminars on topics like graduate school preparation and professional presentation skills are offered throughout the year to enhance the UCARE experience.
Students must confirm a project and faculty advisor before applying. Visit the UCARE website for full eligibility requirements and to learn more about identifying a faculty advisor or developing your research abstract.
