Support undergraduate research on emotion
Organized by: SURE UNCC
College tuition is getting more expensive, but what is not often mentioned are the costs of being an active and dedicated student. Undergraduate involvement in scientific research is essential for students to develop critical thinking skills, grow as scientific investigators and prepare for graduate school. Faculty are dedicated to providing research opportunities to students, however there are limited funds to support student lead research and conference travel to present research findings.
We are the Society for Undergraduate Research on Emotion (SURE) and we are seeking funds to support undergraduate research and travel for presentations at national conferences. We are a group of undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC) who strive to participate in and support undergraduate research on emotion. Emotion is a core aspect of life that affects our decision making, relationships, political beliefs, job performance, etc... Furthermore, how we process and regulate emotion can lead to increased risky behavior, health problems, and mental illness. We are all dedicated to undergraduate student lead research investigating the role of emotion in behavior and we invite you to support our efforts so that our undergraduate students can become better scientists and practitioners in their future careers.
Conducting research as an undergradaute and having the opportunity to present that research at regional and national conferences is critical for evaluating long term career goals and for preparing to become scientists who advance understanding of the critical role emotions have in our lives.
Please support our creative funding effort to raise money to conduct research and attend conferences. SURE is currently in the process of being recognized as a student organization at UNCC. Our goal is to raise enough funds each year to provide small research funds for conducting research as well as to send 10 to 20 undergradaute students to present their research findings at national conferences. Your donation will support an incredible learning opportunity for dedicated undergraduate students and advance understanding of the unique role that emotions have in our decisions, behavior, and mental and physical health.
A donation of any amount is greatly appreciated. To sweeten the deal we have a few incentives...
- If you donate $25, you will revievce a short biography about one of the undergraduate students your donation will support.
- If you donate $55 you will recieve a SURE, tote bag.
- If you donate $125 you will recieve a SURE t-shirt.
Thanks for taking the time to read about our group and our goals. Have a great day!
