PinS provides a unique opportunity for students to enhance their undergraduate experience through a collaborative research project. With the assistance of a faculty partner, students design and execute a project that involves in-depth study in their specific area of interest.
PinS funding helps cover the expenses necessary to ensure the completion and success of the project. Expenses may include supplies such as books, software, or lab equipment, travel for research, or materials like props for a play. Students may request up to $1500 each quarter.
Enhance your undergraduate experience
In addition to PinS grants, the URC supports a variety of academic opportunities for undergraduates.
- The Student Scholar Travel Fund provides up to $1000 for students to travel to an academic conference or scholarly meeting.
- Summer Research Grants offers undergraduates meaningful research experience working with a faculty member from June to August.
- Symposium: A Conference of Undergraduate Research is an annual event that brings together all undergraduates who have engaged in research or in-depth study to present their work.
