Study Your Passion, Get $500 To Do It [SURE Award]

Did you know that Honors students have the exclusive opportunity to win up to $500 for their research? It’s true!  Apply to the UHP/Sigelman Undergraduate Research Enhancement Award (SURE) and we might just cut you a check.
We know “Undergraduate Research Enhancement” doesn’t sound that exciting (well, to most people at least, but you are UHPers), but what you can actually do with that money is pretty sweet. Some of last year’s winners used it to buy high tech equipment to learn about Climate Change for their class project, figure out childhood speech patterns, or study Christianity and homelessness.  Others — like Jonathan Robinson – combined the money to help him get to a conference in Chicago to present on his work on the Federal minimum wage.  The possibilities are endless, but the deadline to apply this semester is October 26, 2012.
