Student Start-Up FUSE
About the Program:
FUSE seeks to engage teams of faculty and students in focused and meaningful research, scholarly and creative activities from mid-May through the end of June. Student Start-Up FUSE works to fulfill the same purpose, but calls on students to take the lead! Students will create a project, apply for funding, and ultimately complete the research with the guidance of a faculty mentor. Research teams will be awarded a faculty stipend of $3,500, a student stipend of $2,500, and up to $500 for materials necessary to complete the scholarly project.

This year, CURCA was pleased to be able to two Student Start-Up FUSE teams. Each team spent six weeks this summer working on their project full-time, presenting their findings, and seeking guidance and feedback from their FUSE peers and mentors.
