2021 Celebrating Undergraduate Excellence Registration
The Office of URSA is excited to announce that registration for OSU’s 2021 Celebrating Undergraduate Excellence (CUE) student submissions is now open! CUE is an annual showcase for OSU undergraduates to present their research and creative projects to the OSU community. Undergraduates from all academic disciplines, in all years of study, and all stages of research or creative work are invited to present. Due to COVID-19, CUE will be a virtual symposium again this year. Each presenter will record a 3-minute lightning talk about their work and post it on a central Canvas page where the symposium will be hosted. The Canvas page will be distributed to OSU community members who will be able to view presenters’ recordings, ask questions, and engage in dialogue via the Canvas discussion board function. The deadline to register to present is May 7, 2021 at 5:00 pm and the Canvas page will go live May 27 and 28. Students can submit proposals here.
OHP and SNAP Virtual Sign-Up Support
The Human Services Resource Center (HSRC), Benton County Health Department, and Department of Human Services will be hosting a virtual sign-up event for Oregon Health Plan (OHP) and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). These sessions will be taking place May 3 – May 7 with two sessions per day at 10am and 1pm PST. SNAP helps make college expenses more affordable by providing up to $234/month to buy groceries. The funds are loaded into an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, which is like a debit card that can be used to purchase food at grocery stores, convenience stores, and farmer’s markets. OHP is free comprehensive health coverage for Oregonians who meet income requirements and other criteria. Curious if you qualify? Students who are citizens or permanent residents may apply for OHP as SNAP as long as they meet income limits and other eligibility requirements. If you are undocumented or DACA, you may apply for Emergency OHP (CAWEM), but are not eligible for SNAP. If you have a child under age 18, they can be covered through Oregon Health Plan (OHP) regardless of immigration status. During these virtual sign-up sessions, OHP community partners will be helping you and your family get familiar with the enrollment process. Be sure to register for the event here!
