• UConn IDEA Workshops Added for Fall 2013

The Office of Undergraduate Research will be holding two additional fall workshops giving students the opportunity to learn about the new UConn IDEA Grant program. UConn IDEA (Imagine/Develop/Engage/Apply) Grants are open to students at all campuses in all majors. Funding of up to $4000 is available to support a self-designed artistic product, community service initiative, entrepreneurial venture, innovation, traditional research project, or other creative endeavor.

The additional workshops will be held on Monday, September 30 from 12:15-1:15pm in ROWE 320, Monday, November 4 from 4:00pm-5:00pm in Laurel 110, and Thursday, November 14 from 12:30-1:30pm in ROWE 320.

Applications for the Fall round of the IDEA Grant program are due by 4:00pm on October 15, 2013. Students awarded a grant in the Fall round will plan and develop the project in Spring 2014 and complete the project work in summer 2014. A new cycle of the IDEA program will begin in Spring 2014 with applications due on March 17, 2014.

2013 Frontiers Program Now Available

We hope that you’re planning to attend the Frontiers exhibition this Friday afternoon or Saturday!

Here’s a link to the program. We have 218 undergraduate students presenting posters for 175 research projects. STEM fields, social science, humanities, and the arts are all well represented. Many students who are presenting their research have received SURF, SHARE, and other Office of Undergraduate Research awards.


The artwork for the Frontiers poster was produced by talented Holster Scholars, Kaitrin Acuna and Julianne Norton. The poster was designed by Mallory Matula. Thank you all!
