The College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences announces the 2009 Undergraduate Research Awards.Â The awards are for research completed during the 2008-2009 academic year by undergraduates within the college.Â
Departments are encouraged to nominate their top students to compete for the research awards.Â Applications should include an abstract or summary of the research project (up to two pages) and a letter of support from a faculty member assisting with the project, as well as contact information for both the applicant and faculty mentor.Â Please note that this event is separate from the Universityâ€™s Undergraduate Research Expo and students are encouraged to apply for both events.
Supporting materials such as photographs, DVDs, or recordings may be submitted as needed for creative projects.Â Selected students will then be given an opportunity to present their work in a format appropriate to their disciplines, such as papers or presentations, at the Undergraduate Research symposium on April 14th.
$500 will be awarded to the first place winner; other prizes and recognition will be given to distinguished projects.
An example of last year’s first place winner’s work can be seen here.
Deadline for nominations:Â March 9, 2009
