Advising and Questions
If you have any questions about Research-Intensive Course Mini-Grants or would like assistance generating ideas for a class that you will be teaching, email Nikki Perry, Assistant Director with the Center for Undergraduate Research, at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be happy to meet with you to discuss plans for your class and help you develop a strong application.
Applications for a Research-Intensive Course Mini-Grant will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
- Merit and impact of the proposed course revisions. Courses can demonstrate an impact in different ways. A large class may have a smaller research component yet reach a large number of students, whereas a smaller course may be able to provide a more in-depth research experience. We encourage applications from all types of courses.
- Degree to which students would be challenged beyond normal research requirements for students at that level or in that major.
- Feasibility and sustainability of the proposed course revisions.
Priority will be given to applicants who have not received a Research-Intensive Course Grant in the past.
