I. Did You Know
Did you know that CNR's Resource Center has a lost and found? If you lost water bottles, jackets, books, glasses etc, please come by 260 Mulford Hall from 8-12pm, 1-5pm before Friday, December 17th. All unclaimed items will be donated.

II. SPUR
The Sponsored Projects for Undergraduate Research Program (SPUR Program) encourages faculty and undergraduate students in the College of Natural Resources to collaborate on research projects by providing a grant to support their joint project. The funding for this program is generously donated by CNR alumni.

There are two types of SPUR projects, Faculty projects and Student Initiated Projects. In January, CNR undergraduates will be able to see and apply to faculty initiated projects. This program is similar to URAP and students are encouraged to look into both SPUR and URAP projects. Eligible students who have identified a project or topic that they would like to pursue as a Student Initiated project, have hopefully been meeting with their CNR faculty mentor. Proposals are due by 12/10. For details about the SPUR Student Initiated application process, please see the SPUR site: http://nature.berkeley.edu/site/spur.php. SPUR is for juniors and seniors only.
