2013-2014 Undergrad Research Scholars Program

Honors & Undergraduate Research announces a call for proposals for the Undergraduate Research Scholars program for the 2013-14 academic year. To qualify the Scholars program, students must be currently involved in or planning a suitable undergraduate project under the mentorship of a Texas A&M Faculty Advisor. Students must have completed at least 60 hours of undergraduate courses with at least 24 hours at Texas A&M. Students should also have and maintain a Texas A&M GPR of 3.0 or higher. Alternatively, if you are in a group of 2-4 students who are working as a team on a larger overall project, or similar but related projects, please consider applying as an Undergraduate Research Scholars Team.
  • The goal of the Scholars Program is to encourage motivated undergraduates to participate actively in research/scholarly projects and to give them the opportunity to communicate their findings as principal authors to the university's scholarly community. Scholars successfully completing the Scholars Program will be recognized at graduation and on their transcript as an Undergraduate Research Scholar.
Interested in learning more about the Undergraduate Research Scholars program? 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.
Please plan to attend one of two Scholars Informational Sessions:
  • Tuesday, March 19th from 5:30-6:30 Memorial Student Center, room 2406B
  • Monday, March 25th from 5:30-6:30 Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Building Auditorium

For more information, see The spring application deadline is April 15, 2013 at 5 p.m.  Questions? Contact Ms. Tammis Sherman at
