Congratulations to CU Geography undergraduate Zac Clement! He was awarded an Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) Individual Grant for the 21-22 academic year to work on his research project "Constructing 'Home': Undergraduate Housing Insecurity in the Time of the COVID-19 Pandemic" under the mentorship of Azita Ranjbar. Zac will receive a stipend to support his work.
The project is aiming to get a better grasp on how undergraduate students have experienced housing insecurity throughout the past year, which he'll be using to write his Geography honor's thesis.
CU Boulder has a rich culture for cultivating undergraduates as emerging scholars, artists and practicing researchers. UROP provides consultation services, workshops, and grants to promote undergraduate research as a high-impact learning practice for student success. Each year UROP funds hundreds of students who produce new knowledge and creative work with CU's world-class faculty.
