The Center for Undergraduate Research (CUGR) at the University of Maine facilitates faculty-mentored research, scholarship, and creative activities for undergraduate students across all academic disciplines since its inception in 2008. Additionally, the CUGR office plans and organizes the UMaine Student Symposium for Research and Creative Activity (UMSS).


AI Tools Disclaimer: All students are required to be transparent about their use of AI tools in the drafting of material for Fellowships or the Symposium. Students are reminded that they are ultimately responsible for the accuracy of any and all content submitted for these opportunities. While AI tools are powerful and can be helpful, they can and often do return incorrect information (known as “hallucinations”) when asked to generate text.
