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 2018, you may be eligible to apply for a UCARE undergraduate research assistantship for the 2018-19 academic year. Application are accepted through March 16 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.

Email with any questions or make an appointment via MyPLAN with Justina Clark from the Office of Undergraduate Research.
