SYNOPSIS

The Undergraduate Research Collaboratives (URC) Program seeks new models and partnerships with the potential (1) to expand the reach of undergraduate research to include first- and second-year college students; (2) to broaden participation and increase diversity in the student talent pool from which the nation's future technical workforce will be drawn; and (3) to enhance the research capacity, infrastructure, and culture of participating institutions. Collectively, these outcomes will substantially strengthen the nation’s research enterprise. For this program, research should be in the chemical sciences or in interdisciplinary areas supported by the chemical sciences. Projects should allow students to create new knowledge that is potentially publishable by providing exposure to research of contemporary scientific interest that is addressed with modern research tools and methods.

EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY

This program provides educational opportunities for  Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students, Postdoctoral Fellows, K-12 Educators . The projects funded by this program may provide funding at multiple levels, including stipends for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral associates, and K-12 educators. Some projects may also focus on educational activities such as curriculum development or student training and retention. To inquire about possible funding opportunities, please look at the active awards for this program to find relevant projects.
