SEARCH Undergraduate Research Grant

By , August 29, 2017 1:34 pm


Undergraduate students applying for SEARCH grants will now be able to submit their applications through a new online system, which can be accessed at Applying for SEARCH or SUROP Grants. Those applying will use their UM System login.

The deadline for SEARCH applications for the 2017/18 academic year is 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15. Students are strongly urged to submit their applications early so that faculty members have time to upload recommendation letters and department chairs can provide their endorsement. Undergraduates from all academic disciplines are encouraged to apply.

A SEARCH Kick Off will be held from 4 to 5:15 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 31 in Katz Hall, room 209. Students and faculty mentors will have an opportunity to preview the online system and ask questions.

SEARCH grants provide undergraduates with up to $1,250 in reimbursable expenses to complete research, scholarly, or artistic projects in partnership with a faculty mentor. Such undergraduate research and creative scholarship can be a high-impact education experience that many alumni cite as a transformative part of their college experience. UMKC’s effort to providing such high-impact experiences is part of its strategic commitment to placing student success at the center.

Further details about undergraduate research and creative scholarship at UMKC can be found on the UMKC Undergraduate Research site.

Questions about the new online system can be directed to Jane Greer, director of undergraduate research.
