Undergraduate Special Opportunities in Artistry and Research (USOAR) is now accepting proposals from current undergraduates interested in conducting an independent artistry or research project in 2014-2015.

Share your idea for a research or artistry project with a faculty member. Once the faculty member has approved your idea, complete a proposal and submit it to ugresearch@niu.edu. Be sure to include all supplemental materials with your proposal. Proposals are due to ugresearch@niu.edu by Friday, Feb. 7.

Students with the most outstanding proposals have the chance to receive up to $2,500 to carry out their proposed projects.

This is a great opportunity for undergraduates to engage more fully in the world of academia while also placing them steps ahead of their peers in the practice of research and artistry.
