Event Description

The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR), with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), has released a national Request for Proposals (RFP) for colleges and universities to participate in a four-year project to create cohesive, undergraduate-research based curricula in four science disciplines:  biology, chemistry, physics, and psychology, and has asked that this RFP be shared widely. To download and review the complete “Request for Institutional Proposals” click here:

Twelve institutions (and two departments/disciplines from each institution) will be selected to participate in the CUR Transformation project.  The recruitment and application process includes four stages: (1) an open, national call for institutions to participate, (2) an open pre-proposal stage, (3) an invited full-proposal stage (not all institutions will be invited to submit full-proposals), and (4) an invited interview stage.  To learn more about the project, please visit the project webpage.
