2015 Conference Grants Application Now Open CUR
The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) is pleased to offer a limited number of conference grants. These grants will be used to subsidize the cost of attendance for individuals to attend either "CUR Dialogues 2015: Climbing the Ladder to Funding Success: Diverse Sources, Diverse Pathways" or "Undergraduate Research Programs: Building, Enhancing, Sustaining. "
Nominees are asked to provide contact and demographical information, a statement of expenses, a statement describing financial need and a statement on expected outcomes from attending the conference. Historically, under-represented groups and first-time attendees will be given priority. The review committee will work to ensure awardees represent a diverse subset of the applicants, specifically across discipline/CUR Division and geographic location.
