8 CEHS undergraduate students receive stipends for summer research projects
15 Jun 2021
The University of Nebraska–Lincoln has awarded stipends to eight undergraduate students in the College of Education and Human Sciences to participate in research with a faculty mentor this summer.
Nebraska’s Undergraduate Creative Activities and Research Experience (UCARE) Program supports undergraduates to work with faculty mentors in research or creative activities. Students receive stipends of $2,400 to engage in intensive research or creative activity for 20 hours per week.
The students’ projects span the academic disciplines of secondary English (7-12), speech-language pathology, and nutrition and health sciences.
The students also will have opportunities to participate in the Big Ten Academic Alliance’s Graduate Education Discovery Program. In August, students from the Nebraska Summer Research Program and UCARE will present posters on their research and creative activities at a virtual campus research symposium.
