    As a Research 1 University, UB has had a long legacy of supporting undergraduate research through the individual academic units and centrally through CURCA (Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities). The ELN is excited to extend and deepen this tradition through its new comprehensive Project Portal. Students from all backgrounds and areas of study are invited to browse project profiles and get started through our new digital badge series, and apply for funding for projects and/or conference presentations. Exemplary projects will be shared through our digital gallery, allowing students to build on past projects, or get started with a project of their own.
