Funding for Faculty Mentors

OURS provides a number of programs and services to both students and faculty. Although we are best known for our Scholar & Fellowship Programs, we also provide direct support for faculty:


Additional Resources for Faculty Mentors

OURS has compiled a number of resources (below) for faculty to utilize as they begin, and continue, to conduct research with undergraduate students. OURS also provides consultations with faculty to develop a plan to engage undergraduate students in aspects of the faculty member’s scholarship. These consultations may include discussions about funding for materials and supplies, designing a research program inclusive of undergraduate students, best practices for mentorship, or writing an external grant supportive of undergraduate students.

The CUSE Google Calendar contains all of the OURS & Office of Fellowships program dates and deadlines in an easy-to-read format.
