The Community College Undergraduate Research Initiative (CCURI) is a national consortium of community colleges, four-year schools, government agencies, and private organizations dedicated to the development, implementation, and assessment of sustainable models for integrating an undergraduate research (UR) experience into community college STEM programs. Over the last 5 years the National Science Foundation has invested over $5.2 million dollars in CCURI though grant awards to Finger Lakes Community College. These awards have funded the growth of a national network of over 40 community colleges that have implemented the CCURI model of undergraduate research. Students from within the network have competed with top notch 4-year college and university students to win awards for high quality research and have contributed work to the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
