The EUReCA! Fellows Program is a highly competitive grants-in-aid program that provides a small number of CU Denver undergraduates with a stipend to conduct original research, creative, or other scholarly activity in the field of their declared major under the supervision of a CU Denver or CU AMC faculty mentor — funds are available for about eight awards in Fall 2018. The deadline for nominations by faculty (see attached) is 10 August 2018.

The goals of this program are to provide talented undergraduates who have a demonstrated interest in pursuing a career involving original research, creative, or other scholarly activity with a scholarly experience. In addition to increasing the number of CU Denver undergraduates engaging in research, creative, or other scholarly activity, goals include elevating the experience for those students who have previously engaged in scholarship.

Undergraduates entering the EUReCA! Fellows Program will have completed relevant coursework; have previously engaged in key elements of the scholarly process; understand how knowledge is generated and disseminated; and have acquired some technical skills relevant to the proposed scholarly activity. As such, Fellows will be prepared to undertake original scholarship.

Each EUReCA! Fellow will receive a stipend totaling up to $3000 to support original research, creative, or other scholarly activity for a period of not less than 15 weeks at approximately 16 hours per week during the Fall 2018 Semester. The stipend will be administered as salary disbursed on a bi-weekly basis during the semester(s) for which the award was made.

The EUReCA! Fellows Program is being supported by the Office of the Provost, with administration by the Office of Research Services in collaboration with the Office of Undergraduate Experiences, Career Center, and Experiential Learning Center.
