CURE’s mission is to support and promote undergraduate research in all disciplines across the College of Liberal & Creative Arts. We aim to advance faculty-student research mentorships and collaboration through programing that includes professional development, skill-building workshops, curricular innovation and opportunities for students to showcase their work.
We are committed to fostering a culture of mutual engagement that benefits student researchers and their mentors. Undergraduate research in the liberal and creative arts empowers students to explore their passions, embrace their learning and develop lifelong critical thinking and problem-solving skills in the discipline and beyond.

The Marcus Undergraduate Research Fellowship
The Marcus Undergraduate Research Fellowship award supports research and creative activity conducted by undergraduate students in partnership with a faculty mentor. Recipients of the Marcus Fellowship will be part of a cohort of fellows engaged in programming that supports research throughout the course of the fellowship. This fellowship opportunity is aimed at undergraduates interested in working closely with a faculty member to develop, complete and present a research project.
The Marcus Undergraduate Student Presentation Grant awards grants up to $1000 for undergraduate student majors in the College of Liberal & Creative Arts who will present their work at an in-person or virtual peer-reviewed or juried conference/meeting/exhibit (e.g., a presenter of a paper, exhibitor of a creative project, or performer).
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis during the academic year.
The steering committee oversees subcommittees and is responsible for strategic planning.
