The Maryland Center for Undergraduate Research (MCUR) is an initiative of the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Studies.  Created as a resource for students and faculty, the Center serves as a clearinghouse for both on-campus and off-campus research opportunities for undergraduates.  Major programs of the MCUR include Maryland Student Researchers, which permits faculty to list research opportunities open to undergraduates during the academic year, and Maryland Summer Scholars, which provides funding for students to conduct summer research (on-campus or elsewhere in the US or abroad as needed) under the mentorship of a Maryland faculty member.  MCUR also presents Undergraduate Research Day, a campus-wide poster event, every spring.

For more information, see Office of Undergraduate Studies section in Chapter 6.
