Results of CUE’s Student Research Grant Competition (November 2021)

Posted on: Nov 23, 2021

The Research and Faculty Development Committee has finished adjudicating applications for the Student Research Grant (November 2021) competition.

Adjudication was based on the merit of each application, as well as the budget available for the competition. This call was highly competitive, and the awards listed below represent the largest number of grants awarded for a single internal competition at CUE.

The Office of Research Services congratulates the award recipients on their success, and encourages all eligible CUE students to participate in the next call for Student Research Grants, scheduled for March 1, 2022.
