Frequently Asked Questions:

Scholars are expected to work full-time for the entire 9-weeks. They will spend approximately 3-4 hrs/week away from the project in order to participate in professional development activities.

·      How will the scholars be selected?

The ADVANCE Faculty Affairs and Diversity Office’s Expanded CRS admissions committee will attempt to match the most qualified students with research projects that are of interest to them. Students that meet the minimum GPA requirements will be further evaluated with respect to grades in specific subjects that are close to the field of research as well as other materials submitted and letters of recommendations.

To facilitate matching, students are asked to provide information regarding the types of research in which they are most interested. If a match is identified, the faculty member will be contacted to see if there is interest in the applicant.

·      What materials are required beyond the application form?

A copy of your transcripts and two recommendation letters are required. At least one recommendation should be from a science teacher/professor.

·      Whom do I contact if I have additional questions?

ADVANCE Faculty Affairs and Diversity Office (advanceuncc@uncc.edu)
