The Undergraduate Research Agreement establishes research benchmarks for the duration of the research project. Undergraduate researchers determine the benchmarks and deadlines by meeting with your research advisor.
Once the Undergraduate Research Agreement is complete, you (the undergraduate researcher), the faculty advisor, and the designated supervisor (if applicable) will sign and you will bring the Agreement to the Departmental Financial Contact to begin the hiring process.
A digital copy will be emailed to UCARE@unl.edu and kept on file. You, your research advisor, and the designated supervisor should all keep copies of the Agreement.
Benchmarks guide you through the research project; they are not set in stone. If you discover that you must revise the benchmarks, simply complete a new Undergraduate Research Agreement and send a copy to UCARE@unl.edu. Keep a copy for your own records.
The faculty research advisor will use the benchmarks to measure your progress and assess whether you are on track. Not meeting the benchmarks may result in dismissal from the UCARE program.
The fillable digital PDF will be available after April 9, the application deadline for 2013-2014 UCARE. Only those projects accepted to UCARE will be required to complete an Undergraduate Research Agreement.
