Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (URECA) awards summer research stipends, small grants, and travel grants, and is a point of contact for students and faculty engaged in research and creative endeavors—helping to bring together students and research mentors. URECA hosts annual events to showcase student work, informs students about research opportunities, and publishes an annual collection of undergraduate abstracts. Most on-campus summer research program applications are due in March. URECA is a program within the Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs and is funded in part by the Simons Foundation. All Stony Brook undergraduates, including incoming freshmen and transfer students, are eligible to participate in supervised research and creative activities: students doing research are reminded to register for credit (0 to 6 credits, generally in 487, 488, and/or 499 courses) with the department in which they are doing research.
