CURO Research Assistantship Program exceeds expectations

In its first year alone, UGA's Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities Assistantship Program has given more than 250 students hands-on experiences in fields ranging from molecular engineering to linguistics. 

The CURO Research Assistantship Program was launched in fall 2014 and offers $1,000 stipends for a nonrenewable semester of independent research under the supervision of faculty members across campus. A total of 258 undergraduates from 78 majors participated during the 2014-2015 academic year, and more than 100 currently are taking part. Although the Honors Program coordinates CURO, more than half the assistantship participants were from outside of the program.
