UCC School of Medicine (SoM) supports active research participation by undergraduate students in the medical school. It offers students the opportunity to participate in exciting projects, mentored by and working side-by-side with UCC-based research scientists and clinicians at the forefront of research frontiers in medicine.
The purpose of the medical research supplement award is consistent with these aims, enabling Principal Investigators to apply for funding for research consumables for a project involving one or more students registered in an undergraduate degree programme of the SoM.
All UCC-based academic staff and UCC-affiliated clinicians are eligible to apply. The applications and awards will be processed by the School of Medicine Research and Postgraduate Affairs Committee. The awards will be made to support ongoing or planned projects involving undergraduate students currently studying within the SoM, and will have a maximum value of €500, which will be made available through the SoM budget. Successful applicants will be notified within four weeks of the closing date.
All purchases through the Supplemental award are to be processed by the awardee through Agresso. All funds must be utilised before September 2022, with any invoices relating to such funds to reach the Finance Office in UCC no later than 31st August 2022.
