Through the generous support of the Gee Family Association, the CCAS supports Asian Studies majors to pursue interdisciplinary academic research, internship or pre-professional work experience, cultural study opportunities, and community service projects. Most awards range from $700 to $1000. Recipients are required to submit a report or presentation at the beginning of the semester immediately following completion of the funded project.
|Competition for Spring Awards||November 1|
|Competition for Summer/Fall Awards||April 1|
Only Asian Studies majors, not in their final semester, are eligible to apply for the AURA. In particular, the project must be completed before the student graduates. For example, a student graduating in May cannot apply for the AURA to conduct a project in the summer. Similarly, a student graduating in December cannot apply for the AURA to conduct a project in the spring.
