The EURO Program will support both full and micro-EURO projects during the Fall 2021 semester, subject to funding availability.
The Early Undergraduate Research Opportunity (EURO) program is intended to provide Buffalo State students with an early undergraduate research/scholarly/creative experience by serving as an assistant. Recruited students would support more advanced students (undergraduate and/or graduate) or the faculty member's research/scholarly/creative activities. The program is intended to engage students early in their academic careers and support the College's emphasis on student success and retention. Faculty from all academic programs are encouraged to apply.
Students are eligible to receive a stipend of $1000 (EURO) or $500 (micro-EURO) for participation in research, scholarly, or creative activity conducted by a faculty mentor (limited funding may be available for necessary supplies). Applications must be completed by faculty and identify a project task (or set of tasks) to be performed by the student within a time frame of approximately ten (10) weeks/EURO or five (5) weeks/micro-EURO during the course of the semester. When the registration site becomes available, EURO students are expected to submit an abstract to SURC 2022 @ Buffalo State describing the scholarly outcome of their project. All EURO awards are subject to prevailing campus Covid-19 guidelines and IRB restrictions.
The EURO program strives to broaden participation and support the College's efforts to engage early career students and increase retention, especially of those who have demonstrated strong performance in their coursework at Buffalo State. Proposals that strongly align with these goals are encouraged and will be more competitive for available funding.
Support for each Fall 2021 EURO project student is limited to a stipend of $1,000/EURO or $500/micro-EURO for participation, with up to $150 per student available for necessary supplies.
Proposals will be reviewed for completeness, quality of the experience for the student (based on their level of engagement with the project, other students (if applicable) and the faculty mentor), and faculty mentoring plan and prior experience mentoring undergraduates conducting research/scholarly/creative activities. Priority will be given to those projects that are strongly aligned with the College's commitment to student success and retention.
(Note: It is appropriate for the early undergraduate research assistant to interact with other more advanced research students in your area, but this cannot replace your responsibility as the primary mentor)
