Participation of undergraduate students in research activities increases their interest in pursuing graduate and professional degrees. Nebraska EPSCoR has created the Undergraduate Research Experience grant program to provide research experiences for selected students in small public and private Nebraska colleges and universities that offer undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math. The program is intended to increase the pool of potential students choosing careers in these areas. The program is funded by a National Science Foundation (NSF) infrastructure grant to Nebraska EPSCoR. Faculty members from groups that are underrepresented in the sciences or those involving students from underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply. Nebraska EPSCoR anticipates funding approximately 4 proposals.
