Sept 4 | Fall 2013 Faculty-Initiated Projects SPUR Deadline

Each semester and summer, CNR students may apply to participate in undergraduate research with CNR faculty through the Sponsored Projects for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) program. Funding for the program is generously donated by CNR alumni. Students may participate in the program by submitting a Student-Initiated Project, or applying to a Faculty-Initiated Project.

Faculty-Initiated Projects
CNR faculty will be seeking sophomores, juniors, and seniors to join them and/or their grad students on research projects for the semester. To apply, students will need a resume, unofficial copy of their transcript, and a statement/cover letter. Faculty are currently submitting fall projects, and students will be able to view and apply to projects online between August 22 - September 4. Available projects can be accessed on the SPUR website by clicking on the "Find a Faculty Project" under the Overview tab:http://nature.berkeley.edu/site/spur.php

Questions?
Please visit the SPUR website: http://nature.berkeley.edu/site/spur.php

CNR students are also encouraged to check out additional research opportunities through URAP (Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program): http://research.berkeley.edu/urap/


Sept 16 | CNR Travel Grant

The fall deadline for the CNR Travel Grant is on Monday September 16th at 5pm. The application is available online here.

The Travel Grant is designed to help students fund travel that is related to research and/or participation in conferences. Students must be students in CNR, have a faculty sponsor from within CNR, and they must present their work at either the CNR Research Symposium or through the CNR Honors Program.

Funds are limited, so make sure you are also applying for alternative funding sources.
