The NSF Undergraduate Research Center (URC) Program seeks new models and partnerships with the potential to expand the reach of undergraduate research to include first- and second-year college students; and to enhance the research capacity, infrastructure, and culture of participating institutions, thereby strengthening the nation’s research enterprise. For this program, research should be in the chemical sciences or in interdisciplinary areas supported by the chemical sciences. Projects should provide exposure to research of contemporary scientific interest that is addressed with modern research tools and methods.  The URC program aims to support the establishment and evaluation of new models in the chemical sciences and allied disciplines that will expand collaborations, broaden undergraduate research opportunities, and enhance capacity and infrastructure in support of and commitment to excellence in undergraduate education.

Because MU may submit only one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, 203 Jesse Hall, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, February 4, 2005.  Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and include a program abstract, identification of potential collaborators, and a budget outline.

Amount: Up to $500,000 per year for 5 years plus up to an additional $200,000 in the first year for equipment to support URC activities.
MU Deadline: February 4, 2005
NSF Deadlines: March 7, 2005 (letter of intent (required)
  April 4, 2005 (full proposal)
