The Board of Regents (BoR) has issued the Request for Application/Proposal for the Supervised Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) and the Opportunities for Partnerships in Technology with Industry (OPT-IN) programs.  Documents explaining the programs and application information are attached.  Below is a short summary of the programs:


SURE:        This program provides research opportunities for women and underrepresented minorities who are undergraduate students in STEM fields.  Students receive $4,000 to work on research and $500 for supplies or travel.  The application is submitted through the BoR LOGAN system and is due 12/1/14 by 4:30 pm.  This is a good way to support research interests for an undergraduate student.


OPT-IN:    The goal of this program is to encourage collaboration with private sector industry/business entities.  The project can either have a research or commercialization focus.  If the project has a research focus, the industry partner must contribute funds towards the project.  The proposal is submitted through the BoR LOGAN system and is due 12/8/14 by 4:30 pm.

 In addition to these programs, BoR is accepting proposals for their Support Fund programs.  Below is list of the programs and the application deadlines.  Program
