CURA is a Federal Work Study (FWS) employment arrangement administered by the OUR to support undergraduate involvement in research and other creative and scholarly activities across campus. Thanks to the backing of university leadership, last year CURA funded around 100 student-faculty collaborations at no cost to faculty or their departments. You can read more about the program at http://ure.uic.edu/facfws.php <br /><br />To participate in the CURA program, researchers will need to identify the student(s) with whom you are interested in working (they must be eligible and have applied for Federal Work Study via the FAFSA). Then complete the online application at https://uofi.uic.edu/fb/sec/2383219 It is also helpful if you speak now with the Business or HR Manager in your department about your interest in hiring a student employee. <br /><br />Awards are available for one semester or the entire academic year. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis in the order in which they are received. Each faculty researcher may apply to support up to three CURA students at a time. CURA is not intended to be combined with other major campus-based funding programs such as LASURI, Honors College research grants, etc., other than those that will meet additional expenses unmet by CURA. Applications will be accepted until the fall CURA fund is depleted or the end of the fourth week of the fall semester, whichever comes first.<br /><br />Within the next couple of days, all UIC students will be reminded to start searching in the UIC Undergraduate Research Experience database to find supervisors and mentors. If you have not done so, please register yourself and your project(s) here: www.ure.uic.edu If you are already registered, be sure your profile is up to date. You can mark your profile as active if you are returning from a leave or inactive if you are temporarily not recruiting students. Please do not remove your profile entirely unless you are leaving UIC permanently.<br /><br />If you are interested in working with a student who is not eligible for Federal Work Study, have that student speak with an academic advisor or Director of Undergraduate Studies to find out about options for course credit or other funded or sponsored programs in the degree-granting college. You can also refer them to this webpage: http://ure.uic.edu/for_students_credit.php or they can email our@uic.edu.<br /><br />If you have questions of your own, feel free to email us in the Office of Undergraduate Research at our@uic.edu. Thank you for your participation in the high-impact practice of undergraduate research, which enhances the student experience and contributes in a multitude of ways to positive educational outcomes for UIC's students.<br /><br />Best wishes,<br />Sara Hall<br /><br /><br /><br />Sara F.
