By the water, in the labs or interacting with business clients,

for research collaboration and entrepreneurial enterprise.
UB's nationally recognized Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity (CURCA) helps students expand their horizons and meet their potential. It connects them to a growing number of scholarship opportunities in academic departments across the campuses—from African-American studies to urban planning.
UB's scholarly communities help you mine the university's rich opportunities for research and creative endeavors. Faculty advisers and instructors can guide you across the broad spectrum of academic disciplines or work with you to narrow the focus and launch specific projects. Choose how you live, work and socialize with like-minded classmates.
Showcase your accomplishments at the annual Celebration of Academic Excellence.
CURCA helps fund UB students who are accepted to present their research at SUNY's undergraduate research fair in Albany, at disciplinary conferences and annual meetings, and at annual conferences hosted by the National Conferences on Undergraduate Research and Council on Undergraduate Research.
UB can help fund your research project and assist you in getting the experiences and skills you’ll need to compete for national and international research awards and scholarships.
