Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences - CUREs
Course-based undergraduate research experiences - CUREs offer research experience within the course activities. Students participate in authentic research allowing them to experience firsthand how to develop a research question and implement the research process. Chico State has several opportunities for students to engage in authentic research in the classroom through the CEMUR Project and CUReCAP Program.
Student Awards for Research and Creativity Grants
The Student Awards for Research and Creativity are grants available to students to complete original projects under the guidance of faculty or staff advisors. The awards are made available three times a year from funds allocated by the Provost.
Federal Work Study for Faculty-Mentored Research
Work-Study is need-based federal aid that provides an opportunity to earn money through a part-time job on campus including being paid to assist professors with their research. Learn more about work-study aid by visiting Chico State's Federal Work-Study webpage. To learn about potential research opportunities paid through the Federal Work-Study program connect with a faculty member who is recruiting student research assistants, check on Handshake, the career services platform for opportunities, and check with your major department staff.
