Undergraduate Research

The Center for Undergraduate Research (CUGR) at the University of Maine facilitates faculty-mentored research, scholarship and creative activities for undergraduate students across all academic disciplines since its inception in 2008. CUGR programs are managed by Mindy (Melinda) Pelletier (Program Manager) and Dr. Ali Abedi (Director) in consultation with the CUGR Advisory Committee. This website provides you with important information regarding announcements, upcoming events, applications for undergraduate research opportunities and research funding provided both by CUGR and external sources, as well as links to other resources for students, administrators, staff, and faculty. In order to keep you up-to-date with our current events, we have also provided links to our multiple social media outlets on this page.
