MENTOR ONLY Application for Mentored Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities Grant

* Use this application ONLY if you are a mentor in search of a mentee.

Please read carefully:
We are using Handshake through the University Career Center (UCC) to match mentors with UG student researchers. We will post the description of your research project on Handshake and it will be available to UG students who are looking for a research opportunity. When you submit this application, the information you provide will be sent to the UCC and posted on Handshake automatically. When an UG student is interested in the research project, they will contact you through Handshake. When the UG contacts you, the two of you can determine if you want to work together. If so, and you want to apply for an award, submit a TEAM APPLICATION.
