About CIRRUS

Background

Initial Hardware and support for undergraduate students was funded as part of a grant from the National Science Foundation. (9414026) The CIRRUS Website has been a resource for chemistry undergraduate research but it has now been upgraded to allow for all disciplines. The discipline labels are now based on typical Council of Undergraduate Research groupings. Additionally, multiple subdisciplines can be specified now to supplement the primary disciplines. The original CIRRUS acronym stood for Chemistry Internet Resource for Research by Undergraduate Students. Now it is interpreted as the Collected Internet Resources for Research by Undergraduate Students.
