Happy Fall, Everyone !
There are two major funding programs at OUR that have deadlines in the Fall Semester, but provide funding in the spring semester.
SHARE (Social Sciences, Humanities, and Arts Research Experience) Awards support undergraduate research projects in the social sciences, humanities, and arts.
In this research apprenticeship, students spend 10 hours per week during the spring semester working on a faculty project. Student apprentices will receive a $1500 stipend during the spring semester. The deadline to apply for SHARE is November 1st.
The other major funding program for the fall is RARE, or Roper Award for Research Experience. Many students don’t realize UConn is home to The Roper Center for Public Opinion Research. The Roper Center is one of the world’s leading archives of social science data, specializing in data from surveys of public opinion. RARE is designed to encourage faculty and undergraduates to use the resources of the Roper Center in undergraduate research and creative projects. Data held by the Roper Center range from the 1930s, when survey research was in its infancy, to the present. Over 50 nations are represented in addition to US data.
Students receiving RARE award funding will spend 10 hours per week during the spring semester working on a project with a faculty member, and receive a $1500 stipend. The deadline to apply for RARE is November 30th.
