Workshops

Presentation Skills Workshop
Learn to clearly and effectively present the results of your research project in a professional setting. This workshop will cover techniques of making an oral or poster presentation and discuss in detail the schedule of the UCI Undergraduate Research Symposium. Reminder: developing your communication skills should be a priority regardless of what you want to do in the future.

Proposal Writing Workshop
Increase your chances of getting funded by writing a winning proposal. This workshop will discuss required components of a proposal including: background and introduction of your research or creative project, expected results and timeline, itemized budget and references, your personal statement and faculty’s letter of recommendation, and appropriate IRB and IACUC forms. Copies of previously funded proposals will be provided.



Deadlines

Fall and Spring Calls for Proposals
UROP provides funding for research-related supplies and expenses through two separate Calls for Proposals. The Calls will be announced on the UROP Website and distributed to faculty members, students, and the undergraduate counseling offices. The proposal should be prepared by the student applicant and jointly submitted by the student and a faculty mentor. UROP will fund a varied set of projects, with grants normally less than $1,000.

Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP)
SURP provides funding for UCI Undergraduates from all disciplines who are conducting summer research projects or creative activities under the guidance of UCI faculty members. The program offers students the opportunity to become immersed in a research topic for a full-time ten-week period or the equivalence of 400 hours. SURP Fellows receive up to a $3,000 stipend.
