The University of California, Riverside wants its undergraduate students to be more involved in campus research, and recently established a program to do just that. Announced earlier this month, the new Chancellor’s Research Fellowship (CRF) will support undergraduate student engagement in faculty mentored research and creative activity projects.
The Chancellor’s Research Fellowship is great opportunity for undergraduate students interested in pursuing graduate or professional school to gain relevant experience and stand out from the crowd. All applicants must create a research project proposal, including a description of their methodological approach.
The competition for the Chancellor’s Research Fellowship is currently open. Current UC Riverside sophomores and juniors in any academic discipline who are maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above are eligible to apply. The program will award up to 12 fellowships to undergraduate students in amounts as much as $5,000 for the 2012-13 academic year. Applications are due on April 13, 2012.
