Biology Mentor Awards
The Biology Division of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) offers an annual award to honor Biology Mentors for their long-term efforts in supervising undergraduate research (UGR) students. Individuals who wish to be considered for this award must be members of the CUR Biology Division or from a CUR Institution. Faculty mentoring interdisciplinary projects are encouraged to apply as long as those projects involve a major biological component.
Biology Student Travel Awards
The Biology Division of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) offers a limited number of travel grants, up to $250 each, for undergraduate students presenting original research results at a regional or national, discipline-specific meeting. Award recipients are required to acknowledge CUR for support of their travel in their talk or poster. Minority students are encouraged to apply.
Grant Preview Service
Experienced Division members (volunteers) will read rough drafts or nearly complete research proposals and can provide valuable feedback prior to final submission. For more information please contact the division chair Karen Resendes
