Honors and Undergraduate Research announces a call for proposals for the Undergraduate Research Scholars program for the 2013-14 academic year. The goals of the Undergraduate Research Scholars program are:
- to encourage motivated undergraduates to participate actively in research or other scholarly projects
- to give students the opportunity to communicate their findings as principal authors to the university's scholarly community
Students may participate in the Undergraduate Research Scholars Program as individuals or as members of a team of 2-5 students working on a common project. Students successfully completing the program will be recognized at graduation and on their transcript as an Undergraduate Research Scholar.
- 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 have and maintain a Texas A&M GPR of 3.0 or higher.
- Applicants must submit a proposal and a project time line.
- Applications will be accepted August 26 - September 20, 2013 at 5 p.m.
