The Undergraduate Research Scholars program provides students the opportunity to participate in an independent research project under the guidance of a faculty member. Students produce an undergraduate research thesis, present their results at a conference, and receive recognition upon completion on their transcript at graduation.
Dr. Duncan MacKenzie, Associate Director for Undergraduate Research in the Office of Honors and Undergraduate Research, will describe the scope of the Scholars program, the procedures for applying, and the expectations for successful completion. If you are interested in becoming an Undergraduate Research Scholar or you are a faculty member interested in mentoring a Scholar, come hear about the program and bring your questions.
