Every year, each of the 13 CUR divisions create an action plan in support of the CUR strategic plan. Many of those plans include awards for both mentors and students, to support research projects, provide funding for conference presentations, and to honor exemplary mentoring.
The following are the calls that are currently open:
Social Sciences Division Undergraduate Conference Presentation Awards
The Social Sciences Division of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) is offering a limited number of grants, up to $200 each, for undergraduate students presenting the results of research that they have conducted at a regional or national, discipline-specific meeting (in person or virtually) during the academic year 2020-2021.
Awards issued on a rolling basis.
Psychology Mid-Career Mentoring Award
The Psychology Division of the Council on Undergraduate Research requests nominations for a Mid-Career Mentoring Award. This award is for a CUR Psychology Division member who has influenced undergraduate research through their own research, through scholarly or creative projects with undergraduates, and/or through demonstrated leadership activities. The award consists of $500.00. In addition, the profile and accomplishments of the award winner will be featured on the Psychology Division’s website.
Deadline to apply is October 15, 2021.
