CUGR, MSGC academic year fellowships recipients announced for 2022–23

The University of Maine Center for Undergraduate Research (CUGR) has announced the 2022–23 undergraduate and graduate recipients of the CUGR and Maine Space Grant Consortium (MSGC) academic year fellowships. The undergraduate and graduate winners are listed on the CUGR website. 

The CUGR Research and Creative Activities fellowships were developed to increase student involvement in faculty-supervised research and are supported through the Office of the Vice President for Research. Each fellowship provides $1,500 per undergraduate student and $3,000 per graduate student for the costs associated with their project. 

The MSGC fellowships help provide research opportunities to students in aerospace technology, space science, human exploration and space development, Earth science and other science- or engineering-related fields. The focus of proposed projects funded by the fellowships must be aligned with the research priorities of NASA’s Earth and space science strategic enterprises. Undergraduate recipients receive $1,500 for research costs and graduate student awardees receive $3,000. 

To learn how to conduct research responsibly and write successful proposals, students are encouraged to sign up for the INT 125 course this spring and participate in Experiential Programs Innovation Central (EPIC). For more information visit
