Student Start-up Faculty Undergraduate Summer Engagement (FUSE)
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. The Student Start-up FUSE program invites students to take the lead on a project of their design. Student Start-up 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.
Applications are due in InfoReady by Friday, October 28th 2016 at 5:00 p.m.

FUSE Class of 2016:
This year, CURCA was pleased to be able to fund nine FUSE Teams: seven traditional FUSE teams and 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 peers and mentors.
