Undergraduates Invited to Apply to 2016 TURF Program

The Center for Transportation and Livable Systems (CTLS) is pleased to announce the sixth year of the Transportation Undergraduate Research Fellowship (TURF) program and invites interested undergraduates to apply.

The TURF program at the University of Connecticut is an intensive summer research experience designed for junior and senior undergraduate college students who are preparing for careers in Transportation. Fellows receive $2,000 to pursue individual research projects (beginning in early June and ending mid-August) under the guidance of CTLS/NEUTC affiliated faculty members and researchers.

Fellows gain experience in proposal writing, research techniques, and research project planning and execution. The program introduces students to projects of the sort encountered during postgraduate research training and fosters an understanding of the planning, discipline, and teamwork involved in the pursuit of answers to critical transportation questions. At the end of the program fellows have the opportunity to prepare academic posters designed to present their research to an audience of their peers and advisors.

Submission Deadline: 5:00 PM, Friday, April 8, 2016
