Congratulations CURE Grant Awardees!

Between March and May, faculty members were engaged in workshops, webinars, and focused work time to transform their classrooms into experiential learning platforms. Smith Institute for Applied Research’s Course-Based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CURE) Fellowship & Grant Program supported faculty in ​developing ​research projects to integrate into their course curriculum and engage the entire class in addressing a research question or problem during the upcoming Fall and Spring semesters.

Through course-based research projects, students acquire valuable skills such as critical thinking and problem-solving, collaboration, leadership, oral and written communication, technology and analysis, and professional work ethics that are in-demand by top employers.

By participating in six workshops, Fellows developed a strategy for imparting research knowledge and skills to their students, and later submitted the materials they prepared during the fellowship for consideration for a CURE grant. Below are grant award winners:

Rhonda Bibbs
Todd Coolbaugh
Douglas Cooper
Eduardo Hayes
Dezette Johnson
DaKysha Moore
Keri Peterson

Individual CURE Grant awards range between $800 and $2300 and can be used to support course-based research related expenses such as participant stipends, software, technology, textbooks, and dissemination of research findings.
