HOUR's PURA Prgram Now OPEN for Proposal Applications for 2021

HOUR (the Hopkins Office for Undergraduate Research) is now accepting submissions for the PURA program. PURA is the Provost's Undergraduate Research Award. Provost Joseph Cooper (1991-1995) established the PURA program in 1993 with a generous endowment by the Hodson Trust. The program was created to support and encourage Hopkins undergraduate students to engage in independent research, scholarly and creative projects. Each recipient receives $3000 to help offset expenses. This funding is discretionary and can be used for anything from living or travel expenses to project related expenses. PURA is open to any registered Hopkins undergraduate regardless of major or minor and supports "passion" projects in any area (basic sciences, arts and humanities, engineering, social sciences, public health, etc). The deadline to apply is September 1. To apply or learn more, visit our website
