This year, another group of undergraduates in the
schools of Arts and Sciences, Engineering and Nursing and
in the Peabody Conservatory will have the opportunity to
conduct original research, guided by a faculty sponsor,
through the PURA program. The maximum amount of the awards
is $3,000, which can be used to defray costs associated
with the project, such as expendable supplies and related
travel. The research is conducted in either the summer or
the fall, with the option of receiving academic credit, and
any freshman, sophomore or junior is eligible to apply. In
2006, 45 awards were granted.
Students from all disciplines are encouraged to submit
proposals; sponsors must be full-time faculty but can be
from any division of the university. Applications are now
available online at
Summer proposals are due by noon on Friday, March 9, and
fall proposals by noon on Wednesday, April 11, in the
office of Theodore Poehler, vice provost for research, 276
Garland Hall, Homewood campus.
