Final Research Reports are finished project summary reports that state the results and outcomes of the project.
Reports should include details about the research methodology, accomplishments, setbacks and final outcome. Even if a project is continuing past the semester or summer, some form of final report is required for all URC-funded grants. Some grants have additional specific requirements that must also be met, such as the submission of an abstract (an abstract is a brief summary of your work) or thank you note, and failure to comply with any of these requirements will be considered when additional funding is requested and/or may result in charge backs to an individual’s student account.
