UCAM research initiation grants
The UCAM Research Initiation Grants meet the University's responsibility to foster the scientific spirit and awaken the students' interest in research from the earliest stages of their education. The aim is to encourage the incorporation into the departments, with current research projects, of students in their final year of their Bachelor's or Master's degree, who can thus have their first contact with scientific and research activity.
Results from previous calls show this initiative to be an excellent opportunity for research groups to make contact with the best academically qualified students. At the end of this training period, they can switch to other training programmes, such as pre-doctoral research training contracts, thus also serving the policy of increasing the number of researchers at UCAM.
Students must develop their research work in any of the UCAM departments. The grants will be exclusively applicable to research groups included in the official register of the Vice-Rector's Office for Research, preferably consolidated groups in which research projects are being developed, financed by the calls of the UCAM Programme, or by funding programmes of external bodies.
MEC collaboration grants for final year students
Collaboration Grants designed to facilitate the collaboration of university students in the departments, combining them with their studies. This type of grant is of unquestionable interest both for departments and for students who are about to complete their Bachelor's Degree studies or who are in the first year of official university Master's Degrees, as they can come into contact with specialised research tasks directly linked to the studies they are pursuing, while at the same time offering them the possibility of broadening their knowledge and specifying their interests with a view to possible incorporation into future teaching or research tasks.
