UCARE 2022-23 Application is Open!


UCARE funding is available to Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors in any majors or fields of study. This opportunity allows students to propose an original research or creative project, through which students will gain hands-on, practical training while building a relationship with a faculty mentor. Projects may be individual or team-based (up to 3 participants).

UCARE students will also create and present a research poster or creative exhibit for events like the UNL Spring Research Fair or Summer Research Symposium. Besides the $2,400 research stipend, UCARE students may apply for additional travel funds to present research at a regional or national conference.
