The Undergraduate Research Award program encourages discovery to stimulate creative activity and to provide Miami Undergraduates faculty-mentored experience in developing grant applications. Each individual student project or team project must be endorsed by a sponsor who certifies that the project is worth doing, has educational value to the student(s) and can be accomplished in the proposed time frame. The project sponsor will ensure the student(s) adhere with compliance committee requirements prior to starting the project. Students should meet with their faculty sponsor well in advance of submission deadlines to coordinate preparation of the proposal. Successful proposals are typically reviewed by faculty sponsors at early stages of the process. Faculty sponsors should be provided with proposal drafts no later than two weeks prior to the submission deadline to provide useful feedback in time for revision—plan ahead!
