UCARE nears application deadline
The Undergraduate Creative Activities and Research Experience program is accepting applications for UCARE research assistantships for the 2014-2015 academic year. Applications are due 3 p.m. March 20.
UCARE supports opportunities for undergraduates to participate in UNL research or creative activities while working under supervision of a faculty advisor. Through UCARE, undergraduate researchers are introduced to the research process. As emerging scholars at UNL, undergraduates have the opportunity to learn how to be effective researchers.
Undergraduate researchers are expected to spend 10 hours a week during the academic year on research and related activities. UCARE participants will present their findings during a poster session at the UNL Spring Research Fair or the Nebraska Summer Research Symposium and will receive a $2400 stipend.
