NCICU Undergraduate Research Grants

The North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities (NCICU) Undergraduate Research Program provides funding for undergraduate research in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The program was created to encourage students to pursue careers or advanced degrees in STEM fields and to promote greater diversity by making it possible for students, including underrepresented students (new American, low-income, first generation, and/or minority college students) to participate in undergraduate research opportunities. The awards are funded by the NCICU Undergraduate Research Endowment. The endowment was established through a gift from the North Carolina GlaxoSmithKline Foundation and other corporate and foundation entities.
